Port Vila Market comes alive everyday except Sunday, when the stall holders return to spend a day with their families. Wander through rows of tropical fruits, vegetables, flowers, shells, artifacts and souvenir stalls. Prices are clearly marked with no haggling, and no-one hassles you to buy anything.
Towards the back of the market are several hot food stands, with long benches and communal tables. There are no signs or menus and each stall sells something different. Just ask what's on offer and sit down. It is usually meat or fish with gravy and rice, 350 Vatu for a plate. This is a place where locals eat and stop by for a chat with their friends.
Coconuts are abundant in Vanuatu and on the market they are quite cheap. Depending on the size, they range from 20 to 60 Vatu.
Kids of Vanuatu
Right beside the Market, there is a playground on the waterfront. Many young mums come here with their kids to spend a day on the swings or just to run around. With their permission we managed to capture a few of these beautiful kids.
