The market is laid out neatly and the prices are displayed. It is fun and kind of nostalgic having ones potatoes and onions weighed out! The eggs, veg and fruit are wonderfully fresh! The vendors are friendly and hepful. Love buying the already prepared and ready to eat sweet pineapples here - such healthy take away food! The market also... More

If you visit the market. Be careful. You will have people coming up to you making a conversation. They then pass you a gift. But the gift is not free. They ask you for money. I know couples who paid $10-$35 for a piece of wood. If they hand it over to you. Don't open it. Just hand it back... More

Must do if you want to see what the locals eat, what grows or if you need to buy as you are cooking you own food. Everything is here, fruit & vegetables, spices, sweets, prepared packed meals.... The prices are competitive the colour of the produce has the eye moving from one stall to the other faster than the brain... More

Let me start by saying I didn't go to the Lautoka Market but the fact that buses bring people from Nadi and Denerau must mean something. If you do stop here on your cruise take the short walk into town and check out the town and markets. Think twice about paying big money to go to mediocre "attractions" from the... More

We walked to the market from the cruise port. It is a very large, covered market area with many different kinds of fruit, vegetables, fish and beef. Friendly venders greeting us with "Bula"

My cousin and I caught the local bus outside First Landing Resort to the city of Lautoka and market. What an amazing experience, you need to do it at least once, no windows, wind in your hair, or rain if your unlucky lol, even worse a plume of fumes coming thru the window. My cousin and I haven't laughed so... More

As the second largest town in Fiji, Lautoka has a sizeable fresh food market. Definitely worth a look. We caught a local bus to Lautoka ($3 from Nadi) & the bus station is on 2 sides of the market. The variety of fruit & vegetables isn't great but it's always interesting to see where local people shop & what they... More

Spouse had hand on wallet in pocket when entered and then felt another hand sliding up his pocket trying to get his wallet. It was a 10-12 year old boy. Slapped hand away and yelled out loud. He thwarted the robbery but it left a bad taste regarding the market. Please be vigilant when shopping here. The handicrafts seemed of... More

We travelled to Lautoka on RCI Voyager and didn't want to do a shore excursion, so a shuttle into town and had a wander through the markets. It was amazing to see the variety of fruit, veg and seafood on offer. Worth a visit !

Place where you get fresh fruits and vegetables. Not forgetting the market also has a section for seafood.
