A place to meet and discover the Polynesian way of life.
The Papeete market is the ideal place to discover the life of the locals of Tahiti. On site you can find artisans, fishermen, farmers, catering services, souvenir stands and several shops. The Papeete market can be considered the heart of the island of Tahiti due to its location in the city center but also for the multitude of fresh local products on offer. On Sunday morning, the ritual is that the market comes alive from 4 a.m. in the morning in order to offer the best Fenua products. Various culinary specialties are on display such as Pua'a Roti (Crispy and glazed roasted pork), Firi Firi (typical Tahitian donuts), raw fish in freshly prepared coconut milk as well as fresh fruit for a good breakfast. The market is a very friendly and authentic place representing the Polynesian way of life with all its charm.
