  • A very typical local market with all the needs for locals shopping, fruits, vegetable and fresh fish. A little overwhelming on a hot day with many exotic aromas and sights and not a sniff of a breeze!

  • Extremely well stocked fresh produce, has a variety of stuff from spices to everything and all veggies and seafoods. Lots of fresh cashews. Reasonably priced.
  • This is a historic market, located in Maputo City downtown. It is probably the biggest, formal market in the city, and you can visit it for getting to know some delicious local fruits, like mango. If you are looking to buy cashew nuts this is one of the best places in town - you will find it plain, tosted and with piri piri. Try to get a discount, specially if you buy large quantities. Have fun.
