Inspect the local produce at Male Fish Market, one of the biggest venues of its kind in the world. Fishermen stock the market every morning, and the daily haul usually includes everything from tuna to swordfish. Make sure you try dried fish, a local specialty with a strong salty taste. You can also find a wide range of fresh fruits and vegetables. Be prepared for some interesting aromas, as fresh fish, crowds, and hot weather make for a strong smell.

Male Fish Market reviews
Although rather chaotic, the Fish Market in Malé provides you with a real, authentic experience as you see how locals thrive on fishing, the second largest industry in the Maldives. more »
Not bad for a fish market, but naming it a sightseeing spot is a bit too much. Generally an untidy part of the city, lots of smell, but way of offering looks hygienic. more »
Best place to experience Maldives fish industry. You can see a huge collection of fishes in here. You can buy and get it cut and cleaned also in here. It’s amazing to see how skilled these people are to effectively cut and clean very large tuna fishes using only a one small knife. You must spend some time here on your visit to male.
Can't believe the entire country's supplies come from here. Amazing! Additionally, if you go behind the market after 5 pm, you can see a variety of marine life including many many stingrays
