About The Quatre Bornes Market
Ready for some shopping while surrounded by Mauritians? Head to Quatre Bornes Market and blend in with the locals for some shopping and do not forget your shopping bags!
Located in the busy town of Quatre Bornes, the Quatre Bornes Market is the ideal place for you to experience the live Mauritian culture. It is mostly visited by locals across the island who come for grocery shopping however we do recommend a visit for tourists who wish to do some shopping as you will have a wide variety of goods.
You will come across a fusion of colours with the watercress, lettuce, tomatoes, bananas being on display among other fruits and vegetables. You will also have stands dedicated to various spices, so take a break and breathe in the rich scent and be sure to stock up on some for your own kitchen.
On Thursdays and Sundays, you will find the Haberdashery section of the market at its best, the Haberdashery is the textile market offering items such as underwear, sports wear or Indian dresses. You will also find fabric of various colours and materials on sale together with blankets, table cloths, shoes, bags and trinkets.
Mauritians love to bargain! So be sure to participate in this little ritual to get a good deal for your purchases. You will be amazed by the extent to which merchants are willing to go for a sale. Some will propose for you to test first, mostly the case for fruits, where you can taste the fruits and buy only if you find it sweet enough.
Do not leave the Quatre Bornes Market without visiting the Foodcourt. Open from Monday to Saturday, you will be faced with delicious options to choose from. From snacks to meals, the Market has it all and you can even watch the food being prepared. Be sure to try some piping hot gato arouille (Taro Root fritter) with some hot sauce, just be careful not to burn your tongue with how delicious it is.
