There is a fair selection, price is very good & sellers are helpful & friendly. Great for tourists to visit & try the dried fish & amazing "bounty" made from natural coconut & honey! Great for people that live here to shop!

You can enjoy even just seeing. Actually this is the cheapest place for fruits and vegetables in Male.

Quite a small local market near the fish market. Lots of bananas and coconut products, including coconut candies. Nothing very outstanding or interesting. Pathways quite narrow.

Male market is one of the attraction places. The area around the market is bustling with activities. Lot of boats loading and unloading of goods at the port. It can be fresh produces or building materials to be sent to another islands. The market is sectionalized by veg, fruits and dried salted fish. In Male there are not much choices... More

Was impressed with the fruit and vegetable market. Though Maldives has very little agriculture of thier own, the variety I was found was amazing. The Veggies and fruits were absolutely fresh.

This place have evolved from it's traditional foundation, and is much in tune with an average Asian market. Still a good place to purchase local produce.

Nothing special about this market. Just a lot of bananas and fresh vegetable. You can probably get some nice photos of bananas though.
