Le Marche Papeete, Papeete, Tahiti

Entire city block between Rue 22 Septembre and Rue Francois Cardella
Papeete , Tahiti
French Polynesia's insider take:

Prepare for sensory overload upon entering Papeete's central market: pungent, exotic smells and piles of tropical fruits of every color. The city's entire population seems to pass through on weekends—especially after church on Sundays, when hundreds of locals squeeze, sniff, and rub the produce before choosing what to buy. (The vendors aren't bothered by this, although some get offended if you try to haggle over prices.) The ground floor is reserved for fresh flowers, produce, and fish, while the upstairs has dry goods and souvenirs—woven pandanus mats and baskets, wood carvings, pareos, even ukuleles. These goods might not be the cheapest or of the best quality, but the market is a good last stop for shopping before heading to the airport.
