It’s the beating heart of Suva and a great place to spend an hour or so poking around with a camera. The boys with barrows own the lanes and they aren’t afraid to mow down a few tourists to deliver their cassava on time. Besides the recognisable tomatoes, cabbages and chillies, look out for bitter gourds, rourou (boiled dalo leaves in lolo), kava, jackfruit, dalo and sweet potatoes.

Head upstairs to buy your sevusevu . Yaqona (kava) root costs anything from $24 to $40 a kilo and a gift of these guarantees 100-watt smiles. Only cheapskates opt for the powdered, less potent, stems.
