What travelers say:

The most magnificent area in the whole market is the fruit and vegetable area in the center. Tahiti women dressed in traditional costumes wear wreaths on their heads and sell all kinds of fresh fruits and vegetables. Customers who come and go are intertwined with them in this busy flow of people, forming a unique landscape. In addition to the Polynesians, there are also Asian and European descent in the market, making the market more diverse. Today, the Papeete market has become the most dynamic place here. Every weekend early in the morning, many zero-hour vendors gather next to the market, holding colorful umbrellas, shouting and selling various specialty products. These gadgets, although they look unusually low-key, are exceptionally exquisite and gorgeous. In the small square in front of the market, there are often colorful activities, always full of local people to hold celebration ceremonies. Whenever the weekend comes, people walk through here in long lines. It wasn't until the sun was high in the air that the world outside the market gradually returned to calm. Julia pushed her young grandson away from the noisy street with the crowd returning home. The jeepneys passing by, accompanied by the hazy night, the air is full of retro atmosphere; in the compartment full of modern advertisements, the passengers with different expressions are like a vivid picture. Each simple composition is carefully telling the beautiful story here.
