If you are an ardent fan of exotic fruits and vegetables, the Dutch Market at the Old Town of Galle is an ideal place to explore. Held at a 19th Century building, flaunting colonial Dutch style architecture, complete with a columned roof, the Dutch market also known as the Green Market is a popular place with locals and tourists alike to get their daily fill of fresh fruits and vegetables including favourites like rambutan, wood apple and a wide range of bananas.

Built in 1880, the Dutch Market’s stone-paved floors can get crowded with vendors and shoppers alike by midday but a 7 to 10 min ((1.5km) ride on a tuk-tuk in the morning from Galley52 can help you evade the rush hour yet catch the live action at a local market place.
