Independence Market


Independence Market

If you are looking for creative art and craft and quality Papua New Guinea souvenirs, the vibrant Boroko Market is the ideal place to buy them.

Local sellers get there and set up early in the morning and the layout of the market makes it a breeze to stroll around it and look at some of the finest items made by locals.

There’s jewellery, necklaces made from shells, the colourful bilums, t-shirts, grass skirts, meri blouse and a whole lot more and best of all, the prices are reasonable.  There’s some markets that really blow your wallet but here the prices are affordable. The more rare the item, you can expect to pay a premium but the competitive nature of the items and the sellers helps reduce the prices.

It’s an amazing place, an amazing experience and you walk away with something memorable about Papua New Guinea.
