If you’re willing to fight the crowds at this flea market in a shed, you may find some interesting Samoan handicrafts or mats, and you can even watch works-in-progress.

This is a local market of Apia. There are some souvenirs, fruits, food etc. Try keke puaa which is a local people's favorite snack! It is a type of a meat bun.

Lots of cheap jewellery, clothes and souvenirs. Very little variation throughout the market, but it's still fun to wander through. There are food stalls where the choice is mostly fried chicken and chips.

Nice to see the fresh fruit and vegetables. The rest of it is mostly cheap trinkets. OK to fill in time or if you want to purchase fresh food.

Lots of places with the same or similar items. Most weren't pushy. A bit smelly in places which didn't make me want to spend too long in there. Happy to haggle overall.

Like all of these markets the asking price is way too high. We purchased a shell necklace for a friend the asking price was 20 Tala I ended up paying 8. This is typical of the markets worldwide.
