  • A must see if you visit Port Louis. Market top in colors, scents... For the faint of heart, avoid the meat lobby.

  • The truth the market is not cute. But if it smells beautiful, clear is full of fruits vegetables and spices that is the most important. Among other goodies. If you are visiting Mauritius if or if there are that go to buy spices at the market and not miss those scents.

  • Packed with fruit and vegetable sellers, very colourful. You need to be firm with hangers on who want to "help you" to show you around. There are some interesting stalls of local handicrafts. It can get hot and packed with people. Keep an eye on your valuables.
  • Do visit to get the local flavor and food. Don't buy souvenir from here you'll get them cheaper at the Super U store or any other mall.
  • We just loved the choices offered around the market, not too pushy sellers, good and cheap local food and drinks. Hard to find parking space. Extremely humid weather.. Loved the buzzing market and the whole city.
  • Crowded market selling various handicrafts and groceries which you can also find in the supermarket. Prices of handicrafts are negotiable and bargaining is a must if you want to get the best value for money.
  • The best alouda of Mauritius is here. Good food court in General.
