Port Louis market is a shopping and street food hub in the heart of Port Louis, Mauritius’ capital city. Also referred to as Port Louis Central Market or ‘Bazaar Port Louis’, the market offers an authentic taste of local life in Mauritius. This is where the locals shop. Stalls are piled high with juicy tropical fruits and vegetables and you’ll hear the sound of stallholders echoing around the hall as they shout prices and vie for your attention.
Make sure you explore each section of the market. If you’re feeling peckish, head to the street food kiosks for snacks such as samosas and dholl puri. You’ll also be rewarded with tasty sweet pastries and a thirst-quenching glass of the island’s creamy alouda drink.
Just outside the market, you’ll find stalls selling clothes and bags, while the first floor is where you can pick up some locally-made crafts. The market is a short walk from Caudan Waterfront and next to Chinatown, so take the time to explore the area’s architecture and cool street art during your time in the city.
