“It’s a foodie’s dream destination”
Robert Oliver, International Chef and Pacific food expert.
Suva market is the largest open-air market in the South Pacific and can be likened to the extraordinary Les Halles market that once thrived in the centre of Paris.
Nowadays people have a powerful urge to connect to the supply of their food and as a result they are drawn to farmers markets. Suva market has always been a farmers market. The food arrives straight from the farms, the fish is fresh from the ocean and on a Saturday locals travel there from the outer islands to sell their speciality foods.
As a young boy growing up in Suva, international chef Robert Oliver would shop there each week with his family. He tributes this extraordinary place with where he decided to become a chef. It is always his first port of call when he turns up in Suva.
