Mahebourg market: Colours, Sounds and Scents of Mauritian Folklore

The village of Mahebourg houses a covered market, open every day, where one can find fruit and vegetable products, a salted fish stand as well as ornaments used in Hindu prayers.

If you like colourful spectacles, the Mahebourg market is worth a visit.

It takes place once a week in the streets near the bus station and the covered market. This is where Mauritian families from neighbouring villages and towns go on Mondays to search for great deals.

Vegetables, fruits, flowers, food, bazaar articles, basketry, souvenirs, T-shirts, branded clothing, fabrics, tablecloths, towels, Indian products, jewellery, shoes, Mauritian and African musical instruments.

One can find anything in this large market in Mahebourg where scents blend with the colours and sounds of voices calling out to potential customers or negotiating the final price.

For those coming from abroad, it is a sure encounter with Mauritian folklore: a pair of dholl puri to satisfy your cravings and a coconut to quench your thirst. Or else, an alouda to take the edge off spicy chutneys and doughnuts. A complete immersion into the daily life of Mauritians in the heart of a coastal village steeped in history.

Its colonial past is reflected in its lined streets and ancient houses. Mahebourg or Le Bourg de Mahé is named after Mahé de La Bourdonnais, the most famous of the governors of the former Isle de France. It was given this name in 1804 replacing that of Port Sud-Est.
