Discover The markets Mauritius

Colourful and convivial, the markets are to be visited in the morning, when the bustle is at its liveliest. You see the Mauritian men and women come to buy the ingredients they need for the preparation of currys or "mine frits", two traditional dishes of the island. In Port-Louis, the market is a stone's throw away from Caudan seafront. Full of variety, it has a food section, a section for cloths and one for souvenirs. People with a sensitive stomach should avoid the meat and fish stalls as the smell is quite strong. However, the fruit and vegetable stands are a delight for the eyes. There is even, in one corner of the market, a traditional herbalist's stand which displays all kinds of herbal teas meant to cure you from various aches and ailments.

    This market is aimed at tourists and haggling here is a little more difficult than at local markets. The souvenirs tend to be of better quality here though.
