“Very interesting market”
Reviewed 4 March 2014

Everyone was very friendly and genuinely happy to help, and they recognize that we didn't necessarily know what everything was. Plenty of fresh and interesting fruits and veg, nice fish, and an interesting craft shop that is by the locals, for the locals. Open everyday, Saturday is the big day when farmers come from all over. Well worth visiting.

“Savusavu town Shopping on Saturday”
Reviewed 3 February 2014

f you're looking for handmade gifts to bring back for yourself or for your friends, you'll want to go in to Savusavu town on Saturday. In addition to all the craft shops being open, this is the day that the local farmers are there with the fresh catches, fruits and veggies and more.

The handcrafts shop that is inside the farmers market is the best place we found in all of Savusavu town to get real authentic handmade items. They have items such as dolls, ornaments, paintings, sculptures and more and you can talk to the local artist about it on site. They have prices listed on them, but if you are buying more than one thing, it's easy to negotiate.

Most shops in town do not take credit cards so make sure you bring cash. They prefer Fijian dollars, but do take US dollars as well. If you don't have cash on you, there is a local bank just across the street and you can withdraw money from there.

What to buy: We bought masks, dolls, ornaments from here all made from parts of Fijian nature.

What to pay: Shopping seems fairly inexpensive. We bought beautiful angel ornaments for about $10 USD a piece, dolls for about $15, masks for about $20 and kitchenware that we're using as display pieces from about $20 and up.
