Central Market

The Central Market spills out of the shabby yet beautiful building in which it is housed, and is a hub of activity where all kinds of goods can be bought, from handicrafts, basketware and carvings, to fruit and vegetables, a variety of seafood and many household items needed for everyday use. Vendors are ready to haggle, and you can often negotiate yourself big discounts, though knowing a little Portuguese will be a real help in this respect. The market is a haven for pickpockets and thieves, though, and visitors should ensure that all valuables are concealed from view.

Information & Facts

Av. 25 de Setembro
Portuguese is the official language, and there are 13 main national languages spoken. English is taught in secondary schools, but is only spoken in the southern tourist regions.

The official currency is the New Metical (MZN), which is divided into 100 centavos. In the southern parts of the country, South African Rand, US Dollars and Pounds Sterling are also accepted to pay for accommodation. Credit cards are accepted in some upmarket hotels in Maputo, but facilities throughout the rest of the country are limited; it is advisable to carry cash or travellers cheques. ATMs are limited and tend to be unreliable, but local banks have branches in most cities.
