The Fruit, Spice and Food Market, built in 1904, is about halfway along Creek Road (now renamed Benjamin Mkapa) is a good place for shopping and sightseeing. It is an attractive place full of fresh farm produced, but the most evocative products are the scented spices and seafood. People from various part of Zanzibar bring their produce, while petty traders have outside stalls surrounding the big market hall, where they sell industrial products ranging from sewing machines to second hand clothes and motor vehicle spear parts.
