Create an itinerary including Victoria Market
Delve into the tastes and sights of the Seychelles at Victoria Market, a vibrant, bustling market in the heart of the capital. Let your senses lead you around this colorful covered bazaar, sampling local seafood, fresh produce, and fragrant spices as you go. Serving up culinary flavors and locally made trinkets since the late 19th century, today the market also makes a perfect place to pick up some inexpensive holiday souvenirs. While operating daily, Saturday mornings draw by far the liveliest crowds, with fishers arriving early to sell their catch of the day. Victoria Market is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our , custom trip planner Edition.

  • Over rated. Fun to see, and walk through but the prices they charge tourists for produce is inflated. Find a local market near your hotel for real island experience

  • Worth spending half hour in this iconic market. You will find all exotic fruits from locals, souvenirs, local dishes near the market in the street, freh fish.
  • A real market for locals not tourists. (Although upstairs there are lots of shops selling souvenirs and clothing at reasonable prices. ) Good quality veg and great fish. We bought a big Jack fish for 100r/s, enough to feed 4 people. Tell them you want it filleted and a young guy will do that too, ( we gave him 50rs tip).
