We drove our rental car ~35km west of Apia and parked with the staff across the Mulifanua Ferry terminal. Arriving at 9AM for the 10AM ferry, we discovered the ticket booth opened at 10:30AM as the early ferry was not operating. We received bad information at the Visitor Center.
After paying 10 WS. tala each, we sat in the nice waiting room with fans until boarding the noon large ferry, before the vehicles. With good weather, the 70 minute crossing was smooth, providing nice photos of islands and disembarking before the vehicles. We purchased our 10 WS. tala each for the 4PM small ferry before touring Savalii to see the nice Salelologa Market.
On our return, we boarded before the vehicles but on the arrival, we joined a confusion of passengers and vehicles to disembark.
The cabins on both ferries were air conditioned with cafe offerings and the ships were professionally operated by a nice staff.

Love it, it’s away for the locals to showcase home made crafts and souvenirs
We brought items here that were way cheaper then at hotels and also in town shops
The fresh fruit especially mangos so yummy and cheap! A great place to support the locals and also buy lavalavas and key rings and gifts to bring home for gifts

This was our 5th trip to Samoa, our 3rd visit to the island of Savaii and our 3rd visit to Salelologa market place. Unlike "Old Apia Market" on the main island of Upolu this market is all under cover with a very high ceiling and no solid walls (only posts) to allow breezes - all ground level so no trip hazards. There is a good range of clothing, souvenirs, artefacts, household goods, groceries and fruit & vegetables. This market has handy things you may need in your room like a bottle opener, can opener, mosquito coils & insect repellent - among other shopping of course. On a previous trip there was an upstairs eatery happening but that seems to have closed however there are a few food & drink shops around the far edge of the premises operating. There is also a Digicell store in case you need a top up of credit for your phone or computer. Be sure to check out the "Frankies" store nearby which has lovely bakery items. Also make sure you drink lots of bottled water to keep hydrated as the climate is hot & humid and wear a good quality UVA/UVB SPF30 or SPF50 sunscreen.

Stopped and bought some sweet slides and sunglasses. Support the locals and buy some gifts from here instead of a hotel.

Not well sign posted but worth the journey. It’s a five minute drive to the left of town down a side road to the right (past tyre savers) it also serves as a bus station and a pool venue. Lots of taro, loads of fruit and vegetables, clothing and household items. Definitely all the local items found in the hotel gift shops at twenty percent of the price. Stall holders are friendly and polite and can give change and plastic bags to hold your purchases.

Good prices on items. Did a lot of my buying here for souvenirs. All shops containing mostly the same items for the same prices. I found this maket was not their to rip you off as i found in Apia they said a High price n then drop it down to the actual price it really is to sound as if your get a good deal.

Went mid week so not all of the market open. Sold everything from homeware to souvenirs and everything else in between. Fabulous ice creams. Lots of fruit and veg. Everyone very happy and friendly.
