This market located in North Goa has over the years has built a reputation for itself as it a preferred destination for locals and expats alike.Parking your car can be a challenge but there is a municipal parking lot where they charge you a flat fee of Rs 20 right at the beginning. Well, the market is what an Indian rural market should offer and more.The business is mostly conducted in the courtyard surrounded by permanent shops including a few eateries. The makeshift shops offer you most of your daily needs: vegetables, rice ( look for local red rice), dry fish, clothes, ropes, fruits,souvenirs, flowers,etc. Do visit the market towards the rear manned by ladies selling earthen items.Not much haggling in the market as a whole and the prices are reasonable.The vendors speak the local language but you can get by with sign language and a bit of Hindi and English.Foreign visitors would love the place as it nearest to a chaotic Indian market.

If you are looking for a market, then this one can be a great option because it is huge and has everything. Quite practical. I focused on spices purchases and found very fresh ones, I have been using them for more than a month and they have not faded at all (but then you might need to ask locals which stalls are the good ones as it varies a lot...). There are small restaurants in the middle and around the market to have a cold drink or lunch.

Located outside of the Mapusa Bus Depot. Mapusa market provides a cloths accessories kaju's etc at very cheap rate. At some places you need to bargain too. If time permits do visit the market. Such markets are now rear in the Urban world.

This was a great way to spend a few hours. Colourful, busy, and very big indoor and outdoor market. We found some lovely bedspreads/tablecloths which we bartered for! Lots of spices and flowers. Fascinating just to people watch.
