“A huge disappointment”
Reviewed 30 January 2012

We were quiet excited about the Friday Mapusa market. However on reaching there we were hugely disappointed with the stuff on sale as well as the quality of the products.
We drove down from Calangute on bikes - took almost 30 minutes to reach there. Finding the market is very easy - it is walk able from the mapusa petrol pump.
The market is good for the locals as it has fruits, local daily wear, stone jewellery etc for sale. The rate of the goods is also very reasonable.
However, the quality was not so great. There is nothing very authentic or exquisite that could have been purchased.
We returned without shopping anything, spending less than 30 minutes in the place.

“Go there to see the market!”
Reviewed 19 December 2010

We went to Mapusa for the local market which is best visited fridays, you can go there every day but it's said to be most popular on fridays. We went there by taxi from Panaji, the price was 300 INR to take as there and back and 100 INR per hour we spend there, waiting charge. In the end we payed 500 INR. I liked the market better than the Anjuna flea market, it's less tourist and way cheaper though there are some stalls selling the same stuff you find in Anjuna. There are more local people and there are many stalls where the locals buy.
