We had small tour to Male and one of the famous sight there is local market. It's small and not clean, but fruits there were very fresh and tasty. We brought some mango and other local fruits and specialities home and still eat them )))

Quick nip around the market to see local fruits, spices etc. Not particularly big, but close to the port and fish market in Male City to tie in together if you're in town.

This is an interesting place if you have the time. Most local tours will bring you here but we walked here ourselves. The bananas are impressive.

This was part of the day tour to Male. It is interesting to have a look and see the local fruit and vegetables in use but not a particularly impressive place. Very small.

The Male Local Market is mainly a fruit market. It's quite small, but packed with locals and tourists. People is very friendly. If you have an hour to kill and you're in the area, don't hesitate and go.

The biggest choice of fresh fruits, what I've seen in Maldives. Good choice of spices as well. Was a bit nicer than fish market. It is worth to visit.

The place is nice, you can taste a lot of fresh fruits and also vegetables. The bananas have the best taste ever tried.

A small place filled with colorful tropical fruits. You can find the supply for the whole island here. It's clean and tidily segmented. The vendors did not hassle you to buy the goods, which I found comforting.

It's pretty much in the middle of the northern shore. If you're at Republic Square (the main square with the big flag) and facing the sea, turn left along the coast and it's a minute or two away.
