Zanzibar, Tanzania- 1 of 3- Grocery shopping in Africa

Stone Town, the historical center of Zanzibar, is home to the Darajani Bazaar, a huge marketplace selling vegetables, spices, dried goods, meat, and seafood. While largely outdoor, there is a smallish central building, built in the early 1900s and un-airconditioned, featuring meat and seafood.

Cautionary note: if you are squeamish about your meats and seafood "au naturel," you may wish to approach the latter part of this post with... ahem... a grain of salt (poor marketplace humor).
