We shopped at 3 different markets in Goa.

1. Mapusa Friday Market...This market is open on Friday from 8:00 am til 6:00 pm..We took a taxi from Candolim for 400 Rs. (expensive, yes) and they waited for us for 3 hours i think..This market is more of a local event and has everything from clothing to produce..Really enjoyed it!!

2. Ingo's Night Market...This Saturday night market was booming with vendors, food vendors and entertainment..Also took a taxi from Candolim for 400 Rs and they waited for us for 5 hours..

3. Anjuna Market..This market is a major attraction for tourists..I found this market to be a bit more touristy and sold everything imaginable..Open every Wednesday from 9:00 am, best to get their early..It was so hot out the day we went..but we did enjoy it..

What to buy: Everything that exists is sold in the markets..At the:

Mapusa Market: I bought 4 really nice cushion covers and a wall hanging for about 800 Rs. which i thought was a really good deal...Also bought a pair of shoes..

At Ingo's Night Market..All i bought was Kingfisher!! Although there was a variety of everthing.

Anjuna Market bought some blouses, a purse and some tank tops!! Could have bought way more, but it was just too hot to shop!!

Alot of the other things i bought in Goa, where from stores in Candolim and Baga..But mostly i bought cushion covers in every style and color..

What to pay: You can spend as little as possibe at the markets..as you can haggle and get the price way down if you know how to do it right!!
