Central Market, Port Louis Reviews

  • 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...

  • There are a lot of variety of vegetable and fruit. Price range is moderate to high depending on the season. It is also a well known tourist trap. So be very careful before buying anything.

  • Bargains galore on this rare visit to our neighbouring island at this market Its got plenty holiday resorts along the coast, sandy beaches with clear clean water, exquisite cuisine & mouth watering cocktails 😎

  • They have everything. The food is extremely cost effective. All the veggies and fruits of the indian ocean. Be sure to walk around and check prices.

  • Definitely worth visiting while you are in Port Louis. There is a combination of local stores and some tourist tat. As in an locations, the Mauritians are friendly, but expect to be approached for cash by a "helpful" local who is willing to show you around their favourite stores.
