Saturday Night Market Things to do in GOA
Wind your way through Arpora and into Saturday Night Market, our street food, booze and panoramic views. There’s indoor and outdoor space with bars – including a Pub Tap Bar for killer cocktails.
Very good and organised flea market in Arpora. Parking easy available, vibe of the market is great with lots of local eateries and dealers and live music as well, must attend. Beautiful gathering ,party and music is good, young and energetic crowd.
Hello, There's a clue in the name, Saturday night market. But if you Google it there is a website http://saturdaynightmarket.com so you can find out from the horses mouth. There is another market in Anjuna, a bit further up the coast however this one opens on a Saturday from 16:00 p.m to 03:00 a.m and it is called Clive's market and is only on the Saturday night.
It's still worth visiting but as CEO says it really has downsized a bit due to the COVID 19, however the fun will resume shortly.
It used to be a fun night out, tourists would come from Goa and all over the world to attend.
The drinks are not at all over-priced. As you can see there is a new component added to food and drinks know as GST (Goods and Services Tax). Earlier it was the poor names drink.
An awesome place. Anytime you go lots of colourful variety shops.A truly Goan place with lively music. People enjoying and shopping off course. A place must visit with lots of things to do.
Like a lot of things in Goa- there has been a lot of envy of successful businesses so people who can, take advantage.
We visited Clive’s Saturday night market whilst staying at our nearby hotel and it proved to be a good shopping experience. Locals told us that it only gets going after dark (4pm onwards) and if walking you may need a torch, we certainly did use the torch on mobile however got it charged with power bank.
It’s very busy and covers around a quarter of a mile square with every sort of stall selling most things anyone might want. There is a large street food section with food from all over the world as well as many local dishes, whilst we didn’t eat we saw lots of others tucking into take away style dishes.
The music is great. Really good bands. The stores are all boutique types. I bought some beautiful outfits. But these are not cheap like Friday night market in Mapusa. But yet really great. Almost every single store was owned by a European designer. No Indians. Totally unexpected experience. very crowded but a lot of crafts. very good deals. very good food .nice jewellery.
There is a small stage area with music from quite a few different bands throughout the evening and a massive separate scooter/car park area. Top tip is to be very aware of scooters around this area as lots of the riders are tourists who have no “Indian” road sense, you can easily get run over if you’re not paying attention.
All the stall holders are happy to haggle and if you are persistent there are some real bargains, I would make sure you have lots of different denomination notes so you can pay the exact price you have negotiated.
The Saturday Night Market at Arpora is a must visit. There are many shopping options ranging from clothing, accessories, antique or boutique jewellery, handicrafts, etc. The eating options are also good with flavors from all across India not limited to Goan food. It is close to the gokarting arena hence we clubbed these 2 places back to back.
We were in Palolem and drove the 3 hours to come to this market because 7 years ago we were here and remembered how amazing it was. To start there are now 2 night markets and our driver brought us to the other one first, we walked around quickly and realized this was not the Saturday Night Market we had been to before. Once we arrived at This one we realized we were at the same place except it was considerably smaller. We talked to a few vendors who explained that most of the foreign vendors have left and now do a bimonthly night market on Fridays. We were disappointed because we had remembered all the unique items we could buy. There are still some of these vendors there and we did buy some unique items, just not as much as we wanted. The food area was great and there was a live band that was decent. Plenty of Indian vendors so a good place to pick up last minute souvenirs, out of the 2 markets Clive's Saturday Night Market is more manageable and crowded but enjoyable no regrets.
