It’s the fruit and vegetables in particular that give the market in Le Moule its changing colours as the seasons go by, allowing strollers to sample the local flavours. Visitors marvel at this colourful and tasty spectacle. Depending on the harvest, local farmers and market gardeners offer fresh fruit and vegetables all year round: avocados, yams, sweet potatoes, pineapples, bananas, Malay apples and papayas.


For a taste of the local produce, venture into the stalls between boulevard Général-de-Gaulle and rue Amédée-Fengarol, where local food products are highly prized.
Sugar cane juice, exotic fruit juices (dragon fruit, Ambarella, Malay apple, etc.) or freshly bottled coconut water. There’s no need to introduce the traditional Accras, which all too often steals the show from other local specialities that are well worth a diversion. These include cassave and bokit, which have made a name for themselves. Traditional cakes, Indian dishes, local sweets – take the time to stop, choose and talk to the producer, that’s the charm of the Le Moule food market.
