It was a great experience for us to visit this African market with lots of products. Spices, fruits and vegetables were fresh and colorful, the fish and meat department was smelly and a bit shocking for me. It’s worth a visit.

Normally when I do a walking tour or stone town tour, I must bring my guests to Darajani Bazaar.
Because my guests can see a lot of things which are selling there like Spices/Fresh Fish/Vegetables/Beef and Tropical Fruits.
Darajani Bazaar it's open every day from morning around 8 a.m. up to evening time.
I recommend everyone to visit when you are in Stone Town.

Great experience to see (and smell!) the hustle and bustle of a real African meat, fish and vegetables market. You can also buy your spices here. Especially the fish auction is quite special to observe.

I can call it fruit and vegetable market. Still you can many others like spices, nuts, stalls selling souvenirs and others. Mangoes, bananas and lichen are the main fruit products here. One piece of a good mango is 1099 shillings equal to 0.4 dollars, but this figure may get double or triple when they recognize that you are not local.

Nothing new to offer on any other of its type. Although the locals were very helpful in helping me navigate my local car rental, through its streets

I hasten to add that I didn't go there in a car on purpose. It was Apple maps

Therefore. Trust me in this. Do not drive in the town centre!!!

Darajani Bazaar, it's one of the markets which has more than one name - some of them they call Spice Market/Darajani Market, or Local Market.
Most of the things that they sell in Darajani Market are fresh. You can see a lot of fresh Fish and it's a good place to purchase spices.

Not exactly a shopping place for most tourists and yet a place to visit. A market of vegetables and other needs basically for the local inhabitants. An odd souvenir pickup of local handicraft. Backpackers dot it the most.

I’ve been to tons of open markets like this and always enjoyed them. The stench was beyond disgusting and indescribable. The chicken area was probably the worst, but I just could not wait to get out of there. What a shame as I would have loved to shop for apices and other things. It’s a large market for sure, but the lack of sanitation can be smelled.

Stone Town local market, where you can find fish, fruit, meat and any type of vegetable or spices.

It's the local market, so it's always full of local people.

The smells and colors are a wonder.

Do not hesitate to spend a good time there between the stalls.

Totally recommended.
