A bustling labyrinth of interesting flavors and sights, Honiara Central Market offers tourists a rare and authentic glimpse into Melanesian culture. Here you can browse through a wide range of local produce including exotic fruit, rows of gigantic, freshly caught tuna fish, and intricate arrays of the Solomon Islands' famed shell jewelry. Mostly sourced from the surrounding villages, these goods sell at very reasonable prices, and it is not customary to haggle. Bring plenty of small notes, keep one eye out for pickpockets, and bear in mind that no toilet facilities exist on site.
