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.

I do not think this is worth visiting. It is just a market. Unless you really have to buy some fruits or something. It got me back to time.

Nothing really interesting to see. Crazy prices and the city is definetely not tourist friendly. If you want to jump and see around don't lose time and spend more time on the beach instead! We regretted not spending extra hours on the beach. Moreover, a big issue all over Maldives, but especially in Male is the trash, plastic (everywhere in the ocean) in particular!!!

Relatively small market located almost next to the fish market. Good place to get a feel for the kind of vegetables and spices used by the Maldavians.

A relatively small market mostly selling fresh produce (veggies, betel leaves and nuts, bananas, papayas, coconuts) and there are a few stalls with candies, coconut oil and other local specialities. It is - like Male in general - not relly visited by tourists (I was there on a Sunday at noon). Sellers were either indifferent or friendly but never pushy, after asking they agreed to take photos with them. Most of them could speak more or less English. 2 small bananas: 10 rufiyaa; a cup of coffee: 15 rufiyaa; small bag of sea almonds: 75 rufiyaa; coconut-honey candy: 25 rufiyaa.

Amazing, lots of fresh and exotic local fruits. I really liked it, because this how you can experience the local life, if you go to be between locals. They were also nice and gave me some to taste some stuff, not only fruits but also a delicious dessert which was wrapped in banana leaves. It was tasting like chocolate, but it also contained some haselnuts probably, and it was made from cocoa. I bought some of those.
