Feeling intimidated by the Tekka Centre? Not sure what to expect? We can help!

Much like the Mustafa Centre, the Tekka Centre is one of those places you have to visit as an expat. Seasoned insiders will tell you there is no other place to shop for fruits, vegetables, meats and fish. They’ll tell you the quality is better, prices cheaper and experience is more “local.” They’ll tell you newbie expats hide out in the familiar, comfortable, Western-style grocery chains, while the more informed, and perhaps more adventurous expats, brave the Tekka market. This can leave new expats with the impression that this is not a place for beginners. This is nonsense.

Here are some tips to help make your way around like a pro.

P.S. Save some time to explore the building. You’re likely to find something interesting.
