Suva Municipal Market

MAIN FOOD MARKETS | SATELLITE MARKETS​

Kiteboarding has to be one of the best traveling.

The cosmopolitan nature of Suva and her people is perhaps nowhere better exemplified than in the marketplace. Men and women from nearly all segments of Fiji’s multiracial population gather here to offer their various wares to the public. Like marketplaces everywhere in the world, the spread-through atmosphere is one of the most lively and energetic with enthusiasm and cheerfulness, along with bargaining and negotiating, both good-natured and otherwise, the order of the day.

Shoppers with time and patience can usually find what they are looking for at just the price they feel is reasonable, for competition among merchants is always lively.  Products available in the markets in Suva vary according to the clientele to which they cater. The market and the mini-markets offer a wide selection of fresh, sun-ripened fruits as well as taro (dalo) and cassava (tavioka) and other vegetables with a variety of seafood more familiar to visitors in western countries.

The markets are not only Suva’s major fresh food supplier, it is also a means of livelihood for thousands of people, but is also a celebration – a six-day fair for those that use the market daily.

Mini Market (Tavakubu)

With the demand from our community within Suva City, the Council provided for mini-markets to cater to the daily demands of the community and its visitors.  These mini-markets are within walking distance of the residents of Suva.

There are four Mini markets within Suva City:

  • Nabua Mini market
  • Bailey Bridge Mini market
  • Flagstaff Mini market
  • Raiwaqa Market
  • Kaukimoce Mini market
