Bat for dinner

The Lae Market stocks a rich variety of food, as Lae is the terminus of the Highlands Highway and is a busy harbour city. Fruit, vegetables and bushmeat from the highlands sit alongside fish and sea foods from the surrounding bay. These common bats are easy to find at PNG markets, and are being sold for around US$3 each.

Dried fish at the Lae Market

There isn't a lot of electricity in Papua New Guinea. As a result, dried sea products, including these fish, are very popular, particularly with highlands people. Throughout the Pacific, most of the sellers at markets are women, and market sales are an important source of income for many rural households.
