Papeete has a daily market place open to the public for shopping and buying groceries.The Papeete daily Market

This market, locally known as "Le Marche", is in a sense, the heart of the city. It has become a tourist and traveler's sightseeing favorite due to its brightly colored vendors and attractive Tahitian products.

Wander among the many stands and displays to find such products as luscious ripe fruits and vegetables, monoi oils and scented soaps, vanilla beans, cakes and pies, fruit preserves, dancing costumes and clothing, woven hats and bags and shell necklaces.

2 floors worth of vendors, including the finest display of floral arrangements of orchids, and anthuriums, marigolds and daisys and other flowers you will ever see.

Located in the heart of Papeete, just one block inland from the center of the waterfront, it's not hard to find.

Open daily from 5:00 am to 5:00 pm, the best times to see it are always early in the morning, especially on Sundays, and also at around 4:00 pm daily when the local fisherman bring in the fresh fish.
