Victoria Street Market

Also known as Indian Market, the Victoria Street Market is a meeting place for dozens of vendors selling everything from Indian spices to clothing and colorful trinkets. It's a great place to pick up inexpensive souvenirs to bring home. Haggling is acceptable.


Shopping opportunities abound across Durban, and street-side vendors who sell their goods right off the ground are relatively common. For a taste of quintessential Durban head to Victoria Street and shop around at its well-known Indian market, selling all manner of trinkets and spices. There are quite a few boutiques selling work of local artisans across Durban – the 8 Morrison Street complex and African Art Centre are two locations absolutely not to be missed.
