Located at the heart of the Capital City, The Port Louis Market is a place one must see for it has grasped the essence of what Mauritius is all about. From the all-round joie de vivre to the lively vegetable sellers and fruit mongers that unendingly promote their products in what seems to be a thousand creole songs being played at the same time, the Port Louis Market is a unique place where one can shop for fresh greeneries, pick from a wide assortment of Mauritian souvenirs and taste uncountable varieties of Mauritian dishes. It is also surrounded by all sorts of shops and small businesses where one can find about anything. We recommend you stop by to taste the o-so-famous Alouda, a refreshing sweet milk-based beverage and for a roti, an Indo-Mauritian recipe whose curry-filled roll will give you an explosion of flavours in just a bite!
