Leader Supermarket

Leaders Supermarket is near the Comoro bridge on the other side of the street from Landmark Supermarket.

Here is Rita, the manager of the Backpackers checking out the oranges at Leaders Supermarket near the Comoro Bridge in Dili.

There is a big frozen food section with frozen fish, chickens, and other meats.

venture_083.jpgIt would be ridiculous to buy fish there because there are fish vendors all along the beach selling fresh fish caught that day.

In the evenings the fish and chicken are grilled and sold from food stalls along the road. When the vendors are not set up you know trouble is brewing

Frozen chickens from Brazil are available at Leaders and Litas which are owned by the same family. “Hello Mister”, is said to have been the busiest supermarket until it got ransacked and burned during the last round of violence.

Leaders does a brisk business with the Australian soldiers and NGO people. There is a upper level that has furniture, bicycles and other stuff for the house.

Fans and electrical adapters are available.

I think many of these vendors might have been former Comoro marketers

Chilis, papayas, oranges, potatoes, greens, carrots, onions, garlic, tomatoes, cabbages, mangos, fish and chickens can be picked up there.

I get as much as possible from this market because the food is fresh and cheap and it helps out the small businessman and farmer.
