Local Market, just a block away from the Male’ Fish Market on the northern harbour, is divided into small stalls. Here the tempo is slower and the atmosphere is more serene, compared to the frenzied activity in the rest of this neighbourhood. Each stall is filled with a multiplicity of local produce chiefly from the atolls. Here you will find varieties of local vegetables, fruits and yams, packets of sweetmeat, nuts and breadfruit chips, bottles of homemade sweets and pickles and bunches of bananas hanging on coir ropes from ceiling beams. One can also get to see smoked and dried fish on sale. It is the commercial centre that promises an outstanding display of hurly-burly all through the day.
