...and the Award for Versatility goes to Mapusa Market!

If there was an award for versatility in markets, Mapusa Market would be undefeated! From spices to homemade wines, there is so much here that you will never get tired of exploring! You can find fresh stocks of homegrown flowers, varieties of chorizo, pottery goods, a collection of wines, amid other essentials and luxuries. Shops selling cashew nuts, seedless tamarind, pickles, cakes, clothes, jewellery, vegetables, coir-mats and ropes are equally busy here! Although one can easily walk to the shacks by the beach for their share of Goan food, the offerings of these eateries are no match for the bonafide Goan grubs found here at the market.

Friday Shopping Frenzy!

Mapusa Market is especially packed on Fridays because on this day, the flea market cuts down the middlemen's prices so the goods are available at rates way cheaper than the other days! Also, Fridays are when the local artists, tradesmen and farmers showcase their work, which makes it even more unmissable.
