Find the perfect souvenir or taste local produce at Old Apia Market, a collection of produce, flea, and fish markets. Find dinner ingredients among the massive selection of fruits and vegetables, including coconuts and taro. If the day is very hot, pick up an ice-cold niu (a drinking coconut). Head to the fish market for the catch of the day and choose between yellowfin tuna, octopus, moray eels, and more unusual options like sea-cucumber gizzards. When you just need gifts to take home, browse the traditional, locally made crafts. Wood carvings, kava bowls, and woven mats make great souvenirs, or pick up a brightly colored, versatile sarong.
