  • A very typical local market with all the needs for locals shopping, fruits, vegetable and fresh fish. A little overwhelming on a hot day with many exotic aromas and sights and not a sniff of a breeze!

  • You get all the veggies and fruits and even fish and meat from here.. They are segregated everything so neat and clean. You get all spices and all from here. The shop people are very nice as well. You can buy from different shops and pay together to one person and they will distribute the money themselves. I mostly buy veg and fruits from here.
  • Lellina helped us with hair.. she was very helpful. And some of the prices are affordable.
  • At the Central market it's possible to find any type of vegetable. I believe it's a plus as this is situated in the Central District. They also stock cashew nuts, basketball from different provinces. They should however improve the cleaning at the sea good section. As I entered the Market I was greeted by an unpleasant smell of dried sea food. I do appreciate the fact that sea food has a natural smell. Unfortunately I forgot to take photos.
  • Lovely place! Fresh fruits, and all other products.
  • Calm you get all types of vegetables and fruits can buy dollar and rand also
