Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

This is the place for fresh produce. Mostly fruits and vegetables but some other items too.
The market is a short walking distance from the cruise port and well worth checking out. While you might not need to bring back food to the cruise ship, a fresh bouquet of flowers is nice.

Groceries are a challenge in Fiji. Most things like meat and vegetables seems to be imported from Australia and New Zealand.

The main market itself has vendors that pretty much sell the same stuff. You won’t find a lot of variety of veggies or any meat / fish. We did see a vendor selling shell fish which was not refrigerated. Seemed risky.

There are some supermarkets but our best find was a Halal meat and fish shop. Most things are frozen but that’s ok. We also found a wine store that had a decent selection of wines.

Otherwise, go to the market for the experience but not for staples to set up your supplies for your vacation.

A large covered market with dozens of merchants selling lots of vegetables, flowers, fruits and some household needs. Alongside the bus terminal it serves many people in and outside the city.
Merchants are welcoming, with a warm "bula" and it is easy sharing the same greeting with them as well as move from one stall to another. We found many to be willing to share a conversation when not busy. Learned about their products and use in Fiji homes. Well worth a self-waling excursion.

My uncle and I visited this market during our recent holiday in Suva. There are lots of stalls inside and outside the main building of the market, selling mostly local tropical fruits and vegetables, as well as a bit of imported fruits, like apples and oranges. There were heaps of bananas, pineapples, papayas, yam(taro), tapioca(cassava), green leafy vegetables, tomatoes, carrots, chilies and many more. We bought some soursop and jackfruit and brought it back to our hotel to eat. The price of the produce here is very reasonable. If exploring local markets in exotic countries is your cup of tea, then this market is a must-visit for you!

Well you can stock up on nearly anything here. Fresh fruit and vegetables, fish, lobster, prawns, crabs, octopus, herbs and spices, fresh flower arrangements, and kava if you so desire.
You can easily spend an hour or more just walking up and down the aisles discovering what the different items are. I was pleased to see a number of refrigerators in the fresh fish section ensuring the quality of the product. Most of the stall holders travel on the Friday evening from outlying islands and set up early on the Saturday morning to commence trade. A must do if visiting Suva

Suva Municipal Market is a big market in Suva. As I heard, this operated every day except Sunday. I used to go there on Saturday to buy some vegetables, fruits, fish and some spices. You can buy anything at a very chapter price than in supermarkets.

If you’ve never visited an open air market you need to see this one. Walk around and soak in the sights, sounds and smells. It’s all there including seafood sitting out in the sun.

….THIS IS THE PERFECT DESTINATION.

SUVA has heaps of shore excursions – some cover the town, others further afield feature waterfalls, beaches, cultural villages, resorts yada. But if like me, you have been here many times, you may feel like just a stretch of the legs – getting off the ship for a stroll. Nothing like an interesting area to check out while you stroll. Which the market area is.
We are talking less than 10 mins by a circuitous route along the pier (this is a working pier, so they coral visitors away from the action) – line of site from the ship to the markets is only 250m.
There is a heap of fresh produce stalls, flower sellers food retailers etc with pretty competitive prices. All under cover. Wcs can be found on the left side (from the ship) of the market. A great place to wander and check the scene. Maybe buy a piece of fruit. Or some hot food.

TIPS – the road on the inland side of the markets is one of the north-south thoroughfares of SUVA’s CBD. Walk across the road for MARKETPOINT supermart and TAPPOO CITY dept. store. One street further inland is another major city shopping street. But I have to say shoppers used to say SE ASIAN prices will be underwhelmed. No bargains here.
- on a previous visit I walked north (left from the market) from the CBD. In less than 15 minutes I found myself up top of the hill around the hospital area. Some panoramic views of the ship and greater bays around Suva up there.

This is one of the largest markets we've ever seen on an island. They have many varieties of fresh caught fish, fruits, vegetables as well as craft items for sale. The vendors seem friendly and realize when you are a tourist and try to help.
