#1 of 10 in Shopping in Vanuatu
Find ingredients for dinner at Port Vila Markets, a market with stalls run by local women from around the island. Hosted in an open-walled building, each stall is filled with quality fruit and vegetables like oranges, beans, peanuts, bananas, eggplant, and other local items you may not be familiar with. If you visit during the summer, do not miss the seasonal sweet raspberries. Keep in mind bargaining is not acceptable and is even considered rude.

  • Fresh veggies, friendly people - clean environment. Take your own bags to the market..you will not come out without buying a few items you just gotta have 😉
  • Vast array of fresh local fruit, vegetables and flowers, and fish from ice-boxes in central location. Cooked local cheap meals from the Mama's available out the back. Fish curry is nice. Closed Sundays. Better value can be found at Manples Market, but offerings are not as extensive.
