Rantepao’s big market takes place every six days. Vegetables, fruit, fish, livestock, baskets, knives, clothes, coffee, you name it. Here you can find almost everything you need (or don’t need).
As a tourist, you’re usually offered fresh fish – and not only here but in other places as well, actually this happens at almost every market we visit in Asia – which always strikes me as odd because what would I do with a fresh (and still moving) fish..?
Anyway, the market is fun to walk around a good place to buy freshly ground Toraja coffee, one of Indonesia’s best.
