Anyone expecting large shopping centres and streets in the Seychelles will quickly learn that this is far from the reality. In Victoria, the small capital of the Seychelles, there are a few shops that invite you to stroll in, while Eden Island is also home to a small shopping centre with some shops, but besides that, the Seychelles has little to offer shopaholics.
If you would like to eat at your own accommodation, you will likely have to rely on the small Aunt Emma stores. These shops can be found on many corners, but they only offer the essentials. There are also a few larger supermarkets (e.g. STC) which offer a more comprehensive range of food. If you wish to save money during your stay, then ensure you choose local products to buy.
Fresh fruit, vegetables, and fish can be found at small stalls on some of the Seychelles' streets. If you are lucky, you can even buy freshly-caught fish straight from the fishermen when they return in the afternoon. The locals provide fresh food in Victoria, especially at the Sir Selwyn Selwyn Clarke Market (Mon - Sat: 10.00 - 18.00). For those looking for souvenirs, there is also a wide selection of these, alongside spices, wooden products, and much more. The market is also a great place to watch the Seychellois as they go about their daily lives, especially on Saturdays.
