Negombo is a fishing village and its market is organized around the colonial part of the city, around Sea Street. When you are in the tourist area, you have to go down the coast towards the south and the fort. The market is very informal, there are several booths set up every day, and others that are installed on the floor, in the street. You can find good fish if you come early in the morning and also many varieties of exotic fruits. It's a good place to impregnate yourself in the atmosphere of the village and see the preparation of some dishes. In general, people buy them to take and eat it at home or at work, but some places have tables and chairs.
