Wonderful Kavieng Market, New Ireland province

Wonderful Kavieng Market, New Ireland province, is one place where you can find the tastiest sea food and freshest vegetables.

The main Kavieng Market is situated on the foreshore and is a central hub of activity most days of the week, except Sundays.

There is a fantastic variety of locally grown fruits and vegetables, fresh and smoked fish, live mud crabs, baskets of sunga and kina shells, and of course plenty of buai.

Also found in large quantities are huge trays of tapioca slice made with coconut milk, sago slice, donuts, rice balls and other local delicacies.

While in Kavieng from last Thursday till Sunday, I took a stroll down to the market from my hotel almost every day, and ate smoked fish, kina shells, tapioca, sago and other local delicacies to my heart’s content.

Although generally a produce market, you will also find woven baskets, locally printed laplaps, and handmade bilums available for sale.

    Thanks Malum on your feature piece in The National newspaper on Kavieng. Very much appreciated as a New Irelander. The market however needs a facelift and public amenities such as toilets and running water will make a lot of difference to people who use the market..

  2. I love fresh and smoke fish of kavieng market..
