MAPUSA FRIDAY MARKET
Mapusa, a small town huddled around the Mount (Alto) is Mapusa, approx. 20 kilometres away from Arambol, has been the market hub of North Goa since ancient times even before proper roads were constructed.
Mapusa market is also fondly known as ‘Mapusa Friday Market’ as it takes place every Friday, the entire year.
Goan customers prefer to buy fresh foodstuffs every few days, thus the Mapusa Market has plenty of fresh fish, a variety of locally produced vegetables, and exotic fruits from jackfruit and mangoes to plantain bananas.
Pickles and preserves, spices, earthen pots, glass bangles, channa baskets coir mats, and the famous Goan 'chouricos' (ready spiced Goan pork sausages), dried fish and prawns, clothing, junk jewelry, and the famous country liquor are all sold at the most reasonable prices one could possibly find.
