A quick tour through a supermarket in La Gaulette in the south of Mauritius. At the time of filming $1 = MUR33
This supermarket was well stocked with food and general merchandise although still small compared to another supermarket 15min away in Black River which had a huge selection of fresh produce. Generally, you’re better off buying fruit and vegetables from roadside stalls but make sure you have an idea of prices before you buy. We spent around 3 weeks in Mauritius – if you have any questions let me know.
