Darajani Market Tour
Duration 4 hour(s)
Food lovers and culture vultures will love this chaotic market, fringing the old part of Stone Town and spilling out onto side streets from underneath a gabled-fronted awning. Dried squid, barrow-fulls of fresh fruit, packets of spices and meat weighed-out on big brass scales – this is where Zanzibaris come to get their food fix. Visitors can take part in a local cooking class which will include shopping for ingredients at the market beforehand. Look out for my article on Swahili Spices in the upcoming May/June issue of Safari for more information.
