  • Lots of local colors at this place. Variety of local artisans, from foodstuffs to non foodstuffs.
  • Very busy place. Some local food and vegetables, but mostly knock-offs made in china. It should feel like the Istanbul bazaar, but they are not quite there yet. And for good reason Port Louis is 250K people, Istanbul is 20milion or so. Actually, the entire island is 1.2 millions. Still worth visiting, you can get cinnamon, curry and other fresh spices.
