Port Mathurin

Port Mathurin is small size, it stays calm and half immersed in its own torpor; there’s no traffic jam, no traffic lights, and no rush... We roam about peacefully, ferreting from one shop to the other. These old but vividly coloured stalls rightly bring out the charm and gaiety of Port Mathurin. Build with wood or sheets of iron, they stretch along the trading roads till the center of the village. The signs of the shops often originate from the name of their proprietors, the latter being mostly Chinese. Others,hand-painted, sing the praises of the shop. We are quite far from the chain of supermarkets of Mauritius or Reunion Island, which are authentic temples of consumer goods. Here, there are no tidy shelves, no hordes of trolleys and no incessant “special offers” advertisements. You’ll only find a heap of eclectic goods. To find what you’re really looking for, you literally have to dig for it! Everything mixes with anything: look upward, and just near the ceiling you will find that the hats are hanging besides the wheels of a bicycle and brooms, and a joyous mess prevails on the swaying shelves: remnants of shimmering cloth, plastic toys, household products and pickles. Sweets, the special pies of Rodrigues and spices share the counter top with shabby postcards and some newspapers. In the shop window, accordions cohabit with a weighing measure, some hats and caps. Indeed, a merry bazaar! Basketry and the chili-based preparations cannot be missed in Port Mathurin. The local handicraft shops sell articles that have been skillfully woven in raffia or in vacoas (hats, baskets, jewellery boxes), whilst the road vendors propose small jars of pickled chilies, chili-lemon, pawpaw and mango relishes..., enough to set the mouth afire!
