The market is a small one, it is ideal to see the culture and life in one go. In saturday it is very pack, if you dont like crowd it is best to visit during the week.

Locals and tourists blend in this melting pot, so make sure you mean business when you barter. Some great fresh produce (mostly fish & vegetables) here which is otherwise a bit lacking, or poor quality in some of the supermarkets on Mahe as a lot...More
