Having been to Anjuna Market twice, we thought we have a look at Mackies night bazaar. We knew that it was held every Saturday at 6pm onwards.
Mackies Night Bazaar is a Goan market.
So we went yesterday, no sign of anyone setting up for the market at 6pm. So we tried again at 7pm, no one. It was not open. So ask around before you go.
Get away from the beach and take a walk by the river. It is very green and lush around the river. It is fairly pleasant and quiet.
Very different from the busy beach.
