Honiara Central Market, a central business for local products

Welcome to a crowded market. But it's fun!!! :)

Welcome to a crowded market. But it’s fun!!! 🙂

Are you looking for local grown and fresh product?  You should go to Honiara Central Market.  Here some tips for you :

  1. Bring your small cash/money, it makes it easier to buy/shop. Some of the vendors don’t have change and if they have, the notes are usually very dirty :).
  2. Don’t bargain. It’s not common for Solomon islander.
  3. Bring your own bag or basket. Most of the vendor don’t provide plastic bag. So rather than buying 1 SBD for 1 piece of plastic bag, better to bring your own, it will save the environment as well as your small money 🙂
  4. Somehow products sold on the ground (not on the table) is cheaper, especially fruits. With the same price you can get bigger size or larger amount.
  5. Relatively safe, but precaution with pick pocketing
  6. If you want to buy lots of fishes, you better come around 1- 4 pm, because the fresh fishes are just arrived.
  7. After shopping you may need a fresh shower afterwards 🙂
