If you happen to be a shopaholic, then what can be a better place for you than Mauritius? It is a haven of shopping malls and street markets. And the one we're going to brief you about now is the Flacq market of Mauritius.
Named after the largest district of Mauritius and also a famous village, the Flacq market is reputed as the largest outdoor market in the paradise island nation. As soon as you visit the market, you'll be bombarded with numerous colours and that is actually one of the reasons why this place is popular among the tourists and locals alike - the vibrant hues. Some of the stalls in the market open everyday but the best recommended time to visit the Flacq market is during Wednesdays and Sundays when all the stalls are open and the place is swarming with people.
Starting from textile products, to many local vegetables and fruits, fresh seafood and fish to the local specialities of the Flacq region - vanilla and herbal tea - can be found in the Flacq market. It is a great place to buy some souvenirs for yourself to take back when you leave. The line of street food vendors sell fried eateries like samosa, bhajiyas, etc. You can test your bargaining skills at the different shops as the prices are highly negotiable.
So put on your shopping shoes and indulge yourself in this authentic Mauritian marketing experience and take back some of the vibrant memories of this beautiful island full of smiling faces!
