    A good idea to spend your free Wednesday time on market.
    It was Wednesday as me my wifey and a new friends decided to get a cab and ride to that market. It was full with various staff. It should be noted that only on Wednesdays and Sundays vegetables and fruits were available. Everyone could find something for themselves. Even though prices were sometimes a little bit high you can bargain with the seller. There were something places where you could sit and eat some local food as well.

    Locals market
    This is a locals market. You can stock up on all your fresh produce for the week, and most stalls have prices clearly on display. There is a textile section which is a little more touristy, but far nicer market than Port Louis. We shopped here when we stayed in the area for a couple of weeks. There is also a small food area with very cheap meals on sale.

    Bustling market, but set days only!
    Headed to the market to get a feel of the local food trade and to get some bits for back at our apartment. It's worth noting that the fruit and veg part of the market is only on set days, Wednesday being one of them. The market itself is vibrant and full of life, with plenty of great fruit and veg available and affordable pricing. There were plenty of clothes stores, and some gifts, but these could be pricey in places so definitely worth haggling over or looking around. A hidden gem is the food stalls at the very back right hand corner of the market, with plenty of local dishes on offer for as little as 15MRP, even the dishes that cost slightly more are exceedingly generous in portions like the biriyani we purchased which was bursting at the seams!

    Locals market with some tourist stalls
    A combined market, an extensive fruit and vegetables market for locals, locals clothes shopping but also a tourists section for clothes and the usual fridge magnets, bowls and lots more. Go further in rather than the tourists first row for better prices. Worth a short stop if passing.

If you are visiting the town of Flacq in the east of Mauritius, don’t miss this market which operates every Wednesday and Sunday. It is fascinating to see the variety of local fruits and vegetables available at reasonable prices and the masses of locals and tourists that throng here. The outlets in the food hall mostly offer Indian cuisine but look delicious and very good value, however the lighting is very dim which put us off somewhat!

We visited in the small market day (Wednesday), however the market was still quite large. Everything on the stalls was very much repetitive, but seeing all the locals buying their fruits and veg was good. The street food stall smelled amazing

We went to the market on a Sunday to see what local things we could bring back. You will find lots of produce, spices and apparel. We purchased a lot of spices but you can get lost going through all the sections.

I recommend bringing a bag with you for your purchases. Also, ask your driver to wait for you as you might not be there for as long as you think.

Flacq market is a must visit while on the island. Wonderful fruits and veggies at, on our standard, ridiculously low prices. Then again everything is relative. The smells of those herbs and spices are still in my nose. Wonderful colourful clothing , mainly of Indian origin. Nice couple of hours wandering.

A very busy Sunday Market has lots of fresh fruits and vegetables. There are plenty of local people there. Behind the food stalls, there are lots of other stalls selling everything from souvenirs, clothing and pots and pans

If you are staying nearby, it is well worth making a trip to see Flacq market as an insight into traditional Mauritius. We found the sights and smells of this bustling market a real buzz. Mostly a vegetable market but some clothes and crafts/ souvenirs. Be prepared to haggle. We bought saffron and vanilla. Our taxi driver was arranged from our hotel and waited nearby.

When in Mauritius it is definately worth your while to visit the market in Flacq. The market is open most days but the best day to visit is on a Sunday. They have a big fruit and vegetable market and you can buy beautiful fresh fruit as well as clothing, shoes etc. The highlight is definately the food court where they sell the most delicious sweet potato cakes, roti and samoosas. If you are a fan of Indian foods and would like to try some of the local dishes at an affordable price this is definately the place to go. Not as crowded as the market in Port Louis and you are not harrassed by hawkers.
