To Barraca or Not

Market in Mozambique

Going to a market in Mozambique is an experience for all the senses. The image featured is that of the main Ponta do Ouro market. 

There are several different street markets and barracas where you can find locally grown fresh produce and a variety of locally made chilli sauces. Freshly baked poa (bread), hand-crafted curios and capulana fabrics (Mozambican fabric patterns). You can buy 2M and Laurentina beers at the pubs as well as the famous Rum and Raspberry drink (Tipo Tinto).
You can even find your last-minute emergency toiletries such as toothbrushes and toothpaste.

Wonder into the back paths of the markets and discover quirky restaurants and pubs as well as stalls that sell Mozambican sim cards, data is really cheap, for around R50 per gig you can have internet access whilst on holiday.
