Markets in Galle, Sri Lanka

Just like most other cities, Galle offers you a good place to get your daily groceries, souvenirs, art and clothing: The local markets. The markets have a broad range of products, and people aren’t scared of negotiating about the prices. Some stalls haven’t priced their products, so they can change the price depending on how “wealthy” you look. Your main goal should be around 60% of the first offer.

The Kanthisiri market is a typical market. People in stalls, selling both regional products and international brands. This market is also known for its broad range of different fabrics like cotton. But there is another market: the Dutch Market. That’s right! A Dutch market in Sri Lanka. On this market, there are loads of fruit and vegetables available. The prices aren’t fixed, so feel free to negotiate.

Lisbon's Favorite Food: 10 Delicious Tastings

Silvia was a fabulous guide. She was spectacular at keeping our walking pace comfortable. This was very considerate since my wife was healing from ankle surgery. When we arrived at our food stops, some were very crowded and Silvia managed around the crowds so we received timely service. She also took us to two excellent cafes, restaurants that are not part of the normal tasting tour. We were treated like royalty.
As if the great service along the food tour route was not enough Silvia provided a wealth of cultural and historical information as we walked our route. Finally, Silvia shared her recommendations for restaurants we should try and offered an itinerary for visiting Belem and then shopping. Several hours after our food tour was finished we received an e-mail from Silvia outlining recommendations for restaurants and shopping.
You will be thrilled with the service provided by Silvia.
