The markets were great but beware - if you do not like seeing lots of raw and red seafood and meat - don't go near the meat section! Smells pretty bad too. AND I do have pics here to show you, so if you don't want to look don't open pics.

The rest of the food and spice market was lovely. It's not a huge market but worth a visit to see and buy local spices, fresh fruit and veg.

Around the outskirts of the food market are shops and some market stalls selling clothing, tourist items and general goods.

Address: Stone Town
Directions: On the edge of Stone Town - ask for directions or get a taxi - a short ride from almost anywhere in town.

Review Helpfulness: 4 out of 5 stars
