The Council has offered different types of Markets to its citizens and stakeholders of their choice … whether it be for the fresh goods markets or for handicrafts.
Shoppers with time and patience can usually find what they are looking for at just the price they feel reasonable, for competition among merchants is always lively.
Products available in the markets in Suva varying according to its clientele to which they cater. The market and the mini-markets offer a wide selection of fresh, sun-ripened fruits as well as taro (dalo) and cassava (tavioka) and other vegetables more familiar to visitors in western countries.
With the influx of tourists into Suva, we have a reserved venue market place – Curio Handicraft Center for the sale of local handicrafted items such as carved statuettes, ceremonial tanoas, lalis, woven mats, baskets and intracately stenciled tapas.
The markets are not only Suva’s major food and handicraft supplier, it is also a means of livelihood for thousands of people, but is also a celebration – a six-day fair for those that use the market daily.
