Shopping La Marche
The perfect place to shop for anything and everything from all the islands is the 155-year-old public market called Le Marché. Located two blocks from the waterfront in the heart of Papeete, the market covers two stories. The lower level is filled with hundreds of stands filled with Tahitian-made crafts, oils, vanilla, fruits, and flowers. While upstairs is reserved for artisans selling pareos, carvings, tifaifai wall hangings or quilts, embroidered cushion covers and other handicrafts. You'll also find a few good shops for purchasing unique black pearl jewelry at fair prices. Here you will also find a cafeteria serving local dishes.

La Marche is more than just a tourist attraction, however. It's also a proper market where locals come to shop for meat and fish or fresh flowers and produce; to chat with friends over coffee at one of the patisseries.
