This is real locals market. It's not just there for tourists. The locals show here for their fruits, veggie, fish, oils and more. I love non commercially made coconut oil. I was able to pick up a couple of bottles for $1.50 each-extremely cheap by...More

A must do if your in the Honiara CBD. Excellent range of local fresh produce and fish. Need to be careful with pick pockets as you would in any marketplace.
