Victoria Street Market - Review

Durban has its own Indian district. Sadly they don’t have a catchy name like Chinatown, but they do have Victoria Street Market. Kurtas, saris, incense, other fabrics, spices and pretty much anything appropriately Indian is available here. The place is a thrill for the senses, with over a hundred and fifty stalls filling the air with sharp, spicy scents. Apart from spices, there’s a market for seafood, meat, fruits and vegetables. And naturally, the Indian atmosphere wouldn’t be complete if you didn’t get a chance to bargain so go ahead and test your negotiation skills against the vendors. The atmosphere here is heady with exotic energy. Close by, you’ll find the Grey Market, which has more Indian shops and architecture. Make sure you tuck into an Atom Bomb curry.

Victoria Street Market, Durban Reviews

  • A must for all tourists, ( local and international ). Safe and friendly destination. Good security within the market building. Gifts and any item purchased, prices can be negotiated with stall owners. Jewellery store available and no need for cash as most stalls accept cards and foreign currency. Shopping hours are Monday to Friday from 8 am until 4h30 pm; Saturday and Sunday from 8am till 2h30 pm (including most holidays)

  • Comprised of many shops selling traditional attire. Zulu traditional mostly. I entered here looking for a head band made of venison fur. That's a cherry on top to a full traditional attire for both male and female. Shops looked almost identical. Traditional sandals are almost every where. If you have a thousand bucks you are good. Parking is a bit of a challenge.

  • In it's Heyday it was great , but i don't feel particularly safe on foot due to the pickpockets , so if you there keep your eyes opened , but a really nice place for fresh produce at the morning market and the some old stores as well.

  • The area surrounding the market is not very safe so use caution when traveling here. Windows wound up. There are a few parking bays outside the market but undercover parking is provided across the road. There are a few security guards in the parking area. There are one or two shops that accept paying with cards however most shops accept cash only. There is a slight odour from the sea food which is natural.... so expect this. However the seafood is fresh and delicious when prepared. The people working there are vibrant and loudly compete for customers. The atmosphere is alive.

  • Lots to purchase from local content at great prices. Great for tourists purchasing souvenirs
