Every Friday afternoon and Saturday morning, next to the sea the colourful weekly market takes place in St Paul, on the west coast of the Reunion island. One may find tons exotic fruits (in January: longani, litchi, passion fruits, ananas, ) and exotic flowers in all possible colours. The vegetables are also well presented next to somelocal home-made finger food..
The most famous snacks are the samoussas: small triangles with different fillings (chicken meat, fish, vegetables)...and of course the "bonbon piment", round balls made from cooked beans spiced up with peppers and other local herbs. I had a fresh pressed sugar cane juice and bought some local products: as the vanilla pods Bourbon, a very good appreciated souvenir and present for beloved ones at home:-)
