Port Vila Markets, Port Vila

4.2
#1 of 6 in Shopping in Vanuatu
Find ingredients for dinner at Port Vila Markets, a market with stalls run by local women from around the island. Hosted in an open-walled building, each stall is filled with quality fruit and vegetables like oranges, beans, peanuts, bananas, eggplant, and other local items you may not be familiar with. If you visit during the summer, do not miss the seasonal sweet raspberries. Keep in mind bargaining is not acceptable and is even considered rude.

  • The wonderful locals make this a great experience. Produce is fresh, tastes amazing and is inexpensive. A must if you are staying and love fresh fruit and veg. Kym Brookes  more »
  • Food markets with a lot of other ladies selling local souvenirs, most of them seemed to make a lot of things themselves, worth a visit. Going back again to get some local souvenirs  more »

  • Cheap fresh produce, and supporting local villages. Easy access by bus, also parking on site and located in main town. Plenty of competition so be sure to shop around and don't be afraid to barter if you feel you can get a better deal. Locals can be quick to charge foreigners high prices, even though you may think the price is fair it is not so great when you find you were charged double the 'local' price. Be vigilant but mostly be polite and friendly, these people are wonderful.
  • Great place to stay. Clean, friendly staff, great shower, close to town, fast wifi, cheap, does not get much better than this....unless you have a prissy fancy rich hotel mentality, I don't see how you could not be happy staying here. I will definitely stay here again when in Port Vila and in need of a place to crash for the night.
  • so good loved vanuatu
  • Fabulous Food!
  • Peaceful-Happiest Place on Earth - Inhabited wift Mostly GOD Fearing People.

Where to stay in Port Vila

As Efate's largest town and the hub of tourist activity, Port Vila offers solid lodging options catering to foreign visitors. Consider staying in an upscale hotel or chain resort along the shores of Vila Bay for easy access to beaches and central attractions. Many hotels and guesthouses allow children under 12 to stay free of charge, and checking for this ahead of time can help you score extremely economical accommodations. You can also look for affordable rooms a bit out of town, at inland guesthouses or low-key resorts. If you do choose to go that far, consider renting a car.
