Maketi Fou: "The Central Market has it all!" Independant State of Samoa Shopping Tip by worldkiwi
Independant State of Samoa Shopping: 3 reviews and 2 photos
Maketi Fou is Apia's noisy, 'aromatic', busy central market. There's a huge area for produce sellers, but also a large are of craft stalls and cooked food take-away places. Here you can find tacky lava-lavas branded with Nike and Addidas logos! It is well worth a look around and soaking up the atmosphere. Next door, the egnine noise and petrol fumes will let you know you've found the central bus station... this is worth a walk through too, just to see the brightly painted Samoan buses!
What to buy: Handicrafts here and also the "craft market" on the waterfront.
Fruit and veges (stock up if you're heading to a fale on the south coast).
A "labelled" lava-lava??
Directions: West of Saleufi Street, about 400m south of Convent Street.
