  • Central Market of Bissau, does not meet the conditions sufficient to be a true modern market. All mixed up and disorderly. Tight, does not offer conditions for untightened circulation. All mixed, which makes it difficult in a certain way to choose products. An absence of environmental hygiene. Of a low variety of products marketed. An unfinished construction.

  • As of March 2019, the market is in a narrow space on the north side of Parque Europa. The larger market grounds on the way to Geba River direction from Hotel Kalliste (the direction of the river where the ferry is located) are closed, although we do not know whether it is a renewal or a new construction.       If it is completed, the market in Parque Europa will be closed-ish. The market is accustomed to foreigners, and the vendors of the stalls are working on a business offensive in fluent English. I just refuse to give up the grace and comfort. You can buy cashew nuts, fruits and vegetables, so it's a great place to cook for yourself. There is also a restaurant in the market. The location was very nice.
