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 colourful experience in the heart of the city. Interesting shops catering for tourists representing the African curiosity (curios, animal skins etc.) Indian spices with a most interesting guide to spices at Madari & Son who we explains which and how spices are mixed for the exotic flavours in a multitude of foreign languages It is the expression of African experience with an Indian flavour
Good buy.....Why buy peppers at R28 for 4 (some stores that claim to give us the best quality and prices) when I got the same freshness for R10.
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.
It's a really nice touristy place but very gimmicky as well. Some of the stall holders are really big chancers with over inflated prices and when you ready to walk out the door the price drops to about 75% less that what it's marked for. Be prepared to haggle for everything here. The spices are very famous and worth a buy. Lots of fake goods so be a bit weary. Great South African carvings and beads.
Exact place for traditional wear. All cultures catered for
