Central Market, Port Louis Reviews - Write a Review

  • It a huge market where the locals go to buy their stuff. It's impressive to see how they trade and you can buy spices for a really cheap price. It's much more interesting to go shopping in the central market than in the Caudan Waterfront Mall where the taxi drivers usually bring you.

  • Fresh produce downstairs, lots of cheap tourist stuff upstairs. We bought lots of souvenirs and clothes at dirt cheap prices. Just be prepared to walk away, and you'll get the price you want. It can be a bit overwhelming, just think of it as a game and have fun.

  • Historical and have a variety of flavors and colours . Mixed of oriental , chinese , creol and Muslims taste , but pay attention to your purse and valuable things.

  • Display of vegetables and fruits are nice Full of activities.smell of spices, medicinal plants and cakes,fresh bread : everything is available there. I like it

  • If you're coming from a south Asian country, or Seattle, you'll get this market. There is loads of stalls, everyone bickers about pricing, everyone tries to swindle you with 'I will give you the cheapest. Only for you'. So yeah, pretty nostalgic. The food is ready good, textbook Mauritian, loads of places for dholpuri and Alouda, and really cheap. BUY SOUVENIRS FROM HERE. YOU'LL FIND EVERYTHING, AND DIRT CHEAP.
