typical market that has survived (until now) the worldwide invasion by supermarkets and malls ! This market is clean , safe and hasslefree . When I was there , I probably was the only foreigner among all the locals !

We were a small group on a guided tour of Maputo that gave a great overview of the city and people. The food, fruit, vegetables and fish were all extremely fresh. I would buy food here.
