Central Market, Port Louis Reviews

  • A must for a tourist with its fresh vegetables fresh fruits and lively place to visit and it is the first market in Mauritius built by the French in 1850.

  • You can buy many things from there. What good is that the seller do there best to speak in your language You will find several of your necessity at the same place and a variety different!! However it's better to keep a local person with you, so that you don't get lost or go bankrupt...

  • Good for VEGETABLES. Character building. Looks dirty. Very smelly !

  • Some one looking for local Mauritius items this market is good place. Please remember to bargain (up to 50%) for getting the items at a good price

  • Great if you like the bustle of a local market. Beware of being ripped off. Shop around before you buy anything because you are likely to find the same items in another stall for half the price.
