Eye opening experience

I have never seen some of the varieties of fruit and vegetable for sale. Clothing and other touristy things were on sale as well. Only open on Wednesday and Sunday.

Flacq market
Mar 2020 • Couples
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.

Wonderful fruit and vegetables market in Flacq
Feb 2020 • Couples
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!

Local market with fascinating stalls
Sep 2019
Take to bus to Flacq market and you will be amazed at all the stalls. Local buys the roasted nuts and cashmere shawls and scarves. The market is mainly under cover and quite large.

Morning trip

Spent an amusing morning here. The traders are real characters and you really must haggle !! The fruit and veg market is also something to see with an amazing range of foods.

Hustle and bustle of true Mauritius
Jan 2020
For those who wish to see a face of true Mauritius , Wednesday or Sunday visit to Flacq market is a an authenticity treat. Those who travel a lot know that markets are among best places to feel the buzz and the pulse of the destination, with their colors, smells and noises. Same at Flacque , depending at which time you come , you will find more or less crowd, but lines filled up with piles of beautiful vegetables and fruits , scent of herbs and skillfully loud sellers each calling to their stand .
Suggested to pass behind veggie lines at the back side of the market where on those 2 days food stalls also open - a quick local street food ( a roti - indian bread with some cooked vegetables inside) and glass of coconut water will add up to the experience. There are also clothes vendors for those who wish to venture into that.
Overall, loud colorful and busy experience but surely so much more Mauritian then big supermarket down the road (which is useful and well supplied but same as the once we have abroad).

Quick visit to the Flacq Market
Jan 2020
The Flacq Market is definitely worth a visit, however, be patient and get ready for a very tight squeeze up and down the rows of vendors. Great place to get some inexpensive clothes. The fresh food looked good too.

very busy market. Tight squeeze at times. Market used by locals and tourists. Vendors very friendly not in your face all the time. You are able to buy anything. Including a lot of look a like items at a fraction of the cost. Felt very safe

Marche de Flacq
Sep 2019
Honestly a very over hyped local bazzar. hardly an attraction. a collection of a few narrow lanes and tighly packed shops . a regular local market, few touristy shops selling souviniers and t-shirts. rest is a fruits and veg market and shops selling street foods and temple/prayers requirements. not worth the efforts for a special trip .

Totally brilliant shopping experience
Sep 2019
After driving in the fascinating countryside with tall sugar cane and huge areas of volcanic rock, through little villages where residents just walk across the road infront of the traffic, some lovely coloured houses, some not so good, the area then gets very busy with many different local shops/bars you know instantly you are near the market (we did the same journey two years ago it is interesting.

Once at the market our driver tries and suceeds to get a parking space opposite and will wait for us.

The market is so exciting place to be, lots of hustle and bustle, unlike anything we have in the UK, the amount of people, the noise, the smells blows your mind. Here you can buy literally anything, great to mix with the locals. There is a vast array of stalls whether is be your local fruit or vegetables, which is at the front area of the market. Walk deeper inside and you find shoes, clothes, fabulously coloured dresses, and wonderful Mauritian woven bags.

It is a total brilliant place to spend around 1 hour, then a nice relaxing journey back to the hotel either side of the narrow road
