Anjuna’s Wednesday Flea Market
 
The Anjuna Flea Market, Goa is named after the famous Anjuna beach. The Anjuna market is organized on Wednesdays on Anjuna beach. Every Wednesday, people from all over Goa come to this beach and become a part of one of the most popular shopping destinations in Goa. Shopping in Goa is a truly interesting pastime. There are a number of small souvenir shops in Goa that sell everything from antique coins to dried fish. Since Goa is mainly known for its lovely beaches, a number of people set up their stalls right at the beach to attract customersThe Anjuna Flea Market is the perfect example of this business sense
 
Anjuna’s Saturday Night Bazaar
 
The ever-expanding Wednesday flea market at Anjuna is not just a place to browse for souvenirs. It’s an essential part of the Goa experience! The famous market is a wonderful blend of Tibetan and Kashmiri traders, colorful Gujarati and Lamani tribal women, blessed-out hippies and travelers from all over the world. Whatever you need, from a used paperback novel to a tattoo you’ll find it here – along with an endless jumble of stalls selling jewellery, carvings, T-shirts, sarongs, chillums and spices. Bargain hard to get a reasonable deal as the traders are wise to unsavvy tourists and start high with their prices. Anjuna’s market can be a bit overwhelming and very hot. For something more relaxing try one of the Saturday-night markets near Baga. Where the emphasis is as much on entertainment and food stalls as it is on the usual collection of handicraft, jewellery and clothing stalls. There is lot of good Indian and Western food, as well as a couple of bars, and when it all gets too much you can wander down to the beach.
     
Ingo’s Saturday Night Market – Arpora  
 
There’s something quite surreal about seeing something so well organised in India, a country where chaos and inefficiency are the order of the day. Everyone puts it down to German management and Ingo has in truth pulled off something of a miracle. People have a great time, the merchants make a load of money and it’s a cool social scene, loud and garish though it can get at times Merchants are now required to pay a hefty amount of cash up front to reserve their places for the season and it’s firmly established on the tourist agenda that Saturday night means Ingo’s. Whether it will continue to flourish is another question – nothing winds the Goans up more than foreigners coming and making a go of things. They soon wonder if they couldn’t be making all the money themselves
     
Friday Bazaar – Mapusa  
 
One of the most famous traditional markets in Goa is the Friday Market at Mapusa which sells everything from dried fish and spices to curios and old coins. It is an authentic market full of activity and life which offers an exceptional insight into the lives of locals and hence shouldn't be missed by anyone visiting Goa! Mapusa, the administrative headquarters and the capital of Bardez taluka is a town 15 km from Goa's capital, Panaji. The town's name evolved from the Konkani words " maap " which means 'volumes of measure' and " Sa" which means 'fill up'. This can be taken to indicate a place where goods are measured and bought. The factors that have caused the Mapusa market to grow to its current size and scope are that Mapusa is located at the hub of commercial activity and that it is situated very close to a place of religious pilgrimage.
     
Panjim  
 
Panaji or Panjim perhaps does not have great buildings or well-known attractions but what it has is its character and that is more than enough for a willing visitor to have a look around. Panaji is also the travel hub of Goa and this is the first place to be touched up while you are landing in Goa. Dabolim Airport located on the outskirts of Panaji connect Goa with other places in India and also welcomes good number of charter flights directly flying from Europe. The town of Panaji is laid out in typical grid pattern, centered on a church square. It is a charming city on the left bank of the silvery Mandovi River. It has beautiful, red roofed houses with stucco walls built in Latin style, well laid gardens, statues and avenues lined with trees.Largo da Igreja
