An excellent location for ardent shoppers, Mapusa market is just the
usual Goan bazaar for most of the week, where local traders bring in
their usual fare except for Fridays, when the market turns into a
platform for Goan entrepreneurs to showcase their produce in the most
vibrant (and noisy) fashion.
You can find just about anything at Mapusa Market on a Friday, with
items ranging from antiques and Goan pottery to handicrafts, textiles,
clothing, spices, fruits, vegetables, meats, jewellery and much more.
Bargaining may save you some cash here, so this comes across as a good
place to test your haggling skills.
