Port Vila Markets

Posted in Location & Attractions @ Feb 25th 2016 5:13pm - By Administrator

Wander through this vibrant waterfront marketplace at ease and browse through delicate handicrafts and pick up some souvenirs. See unique products you won’t find anywhere else. Foodies won’t be able to resist the tropical fruit on display including coconuts, grapefruit and, depending on the season, passionfruit, mangoes and wild raspberries. Get your hair braided by one of the local women and embrace local “Ni Vanuatu” life.

Vila Market is open round-the-clock from early Monday through to noon on Saturday. Fruit and vegetables, flowers, firewood, jewellery, woodcarvings and souvenirs are in the care of ni-Van women wearing colourful Mother Hubbard dresses. Buy unique jewellery, sample fresh fruits and vegetables.

Bargain basement prices are friendly: coconuts, pawpaws and huge grapefruit can start at around VT20; a generous slab of laplap is around VT150. Produce is seasonal - look for wild raspberries in September, mangoes in November and passionfruit from March to May. Benches at the back are for diners. The ladies cook interesting meals like herb-coated fish with rice, as you watch. You’ll be delighted by the selection of fresh fruits and delicious meals. Bring your appetite and enjoy the delicious treats.

There's no bargaining. Prices are clearly marked and no one ever hassles you to buy anything. Have fun and browse through the diverse stalls. This is a fantastic way to spend your afternoon.

Port Vila Markets takes place in Port Vila, Vanuatu. Our Port Vila Resort is just minutes away from Port Vila.

Our oceanfront two bedroom apartment features a fully equipped kitchen, separate lounge, bath with shower, private sundeck and covered outdoor area. Our apartments have an adjoining door leading to the next two bedroom apartment, so it is perfect for larger families or groups of friends looking to stay in a four bedroom apartment.
