Floating Market, Willemstad

3.1
#1 of 18 in Shopping in Curacao
Sample fresh regional dishes at Floating Market, where stalls and vendors operate out of boats as well as along the embankment. Curacao imports most of its food from surrounding islands and South American countries like Venezuela and Colombia; the boats that make up this market sell abundant quantities of fresh seafood, fruit, and other goods from those countries. Get into some Caribbean flavors with yuka, plantains, passion fruit, sugarcane, key limes, large avocados, and peppers.

  • Fresh fruits and vegetables from Venezuela. We actually purchased a few mangoes here, the mangoes was delicious, there was a language barrier but we had fun with it. They accept USA dollars.
  • Was an attraction for tourist for 101 years. But the economy crisis in Venezuela, there are no floating market any more.
  • There are no other place like this. Irealy love this place.

  • As awesome place to get some fresh produce and dive into the local culture!
