Markets in Port Louis
Farquahar Street Market
(1)
Leaving behind the modern and urban Port Louis, away, but still stuck to the malls and at the same time hidden from the news skyscrapers in the financial capital, we find a street which is filled every day with a type of market selling clothes, furniture, shoes, and it is in the entrance to the Municipal Market. People know it also as the Farquahar Street Market, to differentiate it from another a few streets away which also doesn't belong to the city. Going in is a feast for the senses. There are fruits and vegetables, both known and unknown, pyramids of tomatoes, lemons, oranges, cabbage, lettuce, all kinds of spices and seasonings, curries, peppers, flavored salts. Vendors let you test and taste, then clean their products and stack them so they don't spoil. Every gesture is an invitation to purchase. The building has a second floor, which since 2004 has some escalators that were part of a modernization that the building, which dates back to 1844, needed. On the second floor things change selling: delicate spices such as vanilla fresh, pure cinnamon or saffron, craft stalls and souvenir t-shirts. Also, and it's funny, the more oppressive atmosphere is because sellers have filled all the space of items for sale and it is difficult to pass through. If to this we add the fact that traders are a little bit pushy, I think a visit to the second floor was not much to my liking, if I am honest. Still, I bought some fresh vanilla beans and ginger root for a few euros, and the experience was quite satisfactory ...
