Even if some cheap stands made their way into this market, you'll still mostly find nice local products there, including beautiful fruits and vegetables, multiple types of hot sauces and the omnipresent vanilla. Colorful and pleasant.

You cannot enjoy Reunion Island without chilling out in markets. So much scents, colors, fruits, gifs. This one is the biggest and the best one, just close to the sea
