A Trip to Goa is incomplete without experiencing the local markets, haggling and buying some of the local fares.

Listed below are some items that you could bring home as souvenirs from your Goa trip.

Just as you cannot leave Goa without visiting one of its numerous beaches, you cannot leave Goa without a sea shell souvenir! There are a plethora of items, made of seashells that you can take home from here – necklaces, earrings, bracelets, keychains, lamp shades to name a few.

Goan cashew and coconut feni are one of Goa’s pride as is its Cabo. There are also other fruit based wines that you can buy. Easily available, make sure to take home a bottle, which, in itself makes for a great souvenir! There are mini versions available too.


A ready to eat dessert, Bebinca is made from flour, eggs, coconut milk, and sugar. It has a short shelf life so plan to pick it up just before you leave for home. It is available at supermarkets and bakeries. 


Kokum is to Goa what tamarind is to Tamil Nadu. A natural souring agent, kokum lends its mild flavor to many a dish. It has a lovely pink color. In summer, the markets are full of the fresh fruit while you can pick the dry ones to take home, throughout the year. Take home some Kokum Sherbet to just mix water and relish.
