The famous Indian Market, on which the current Victoria Street Market sits, started back in 1910. After being destroyed by a fire, it reinvented itself in 1973, and now attracts scores of residents and travelers to its indoor bazaar. Have your own concoction of curry powder prepared at any of the spice stores, browse garment shops, and try on Indian and Zulu jewelry. You’ll find men and women in traditional kurtas and saris speaking Zulu, Hindi and English, selling spices, scarves and other treasures. On the ground floor, you’ll find a food market offering fresh seafood, meat and produce.
