During the peak tourist inflow when the weather of Goa is amazingly pleasant, Ingo's Saturday Night bazaar (Market) is held with full enthusiasm. From the name, you can understand that the market takes place at night and that only on Saturdays. This is a seasonal market that is held in a vast area located between Arpora and Anjuna city resorts. The area is surrounded by a fence to keep it protected.
The first market of the season is held before the New Year when Goa is flocked by tourists from across the globe. Saturday Night Market Goa ends with the last market conducted at the end of April when the temperature starts rising. The market remains open from 4 PM to 11 PM. Because of its popularity, travel agencies arrange special trips for tourists who want to visit this Saturday Night Bazaar.
As the market is held near the Arpora beach, it is also known as the Arpora Saturday Night Market. For the tourists who are traveling to Goa this time, this market is a must-visit. The night market is so popular that even the regular entertainment spots remain empty on Saturday evenings. People prefer to enjoy a different kind of fun in the Ingo's Saturday night bazaar instead of the usual night clubs.
Apart from the tourists, the Saturday Night market also attracts a number of local and foreign traders including many Europeans who want to showcase their products in the market.
You will find a variety of products including herbs and spices to handicrafts, bags, accessories, designer jewelry, rugs, and carpets. You can also treat your taste bud to sumptuous foodstuff that includes both Indian and international cuisine. At Ingo's Saturday night bazaar, you can also check your bargaining skill as the products are priced at a high rate and you have to make the deal to get the price down to your own desire.
All this gathering of people, food, fun, and colors also includes trance music and lighting effects of Goa. Every restaurant entertains visitors with live music while at the center of the market, an open stage is there for the performers. This stage is built for everyone who really wants to share whatever he or she likes to. There is always a wide empty space around the square that is reserved for the people who love to dance.
