Mapusa Friday Bazaar


  • SHOP / Flea Markets & Markets

In addition to the regular lively market of Mapusa, Fridays the traditional bazaar. One of the few remaining authentic bazaars left in Goa. Women from the neighbouring villages convene here early every Friday morning to fight for space, squatting under beaten hand-held umbrella to sell their wares. Everything and anything is sold here for dried fish, spices, jack fruit, plantain bananas to homemade pickles and preserves, spices, earthen pots, coir mats, and the famous home-cured Goan sausage, the local chorizo. If you are lucky you may also find some antique curios.  The market shuts down shortly after sunset, so get there early!
