Quatre Bornes Market


On Thursday and Sunday scores of locals flock to the city to rummage through stall upon stall at this bustling produce and textile market; there's also a popular veggie market on Saturday. Frequent bus services operate between Rose Hill, Port Louis and the bus station in Quatre Bornes (beside the town hall). Buses for Curepipe, Floréal and Flic en Flac stop at regular intervals along St Jean Rd.
