  • Originally, the building was to be a bus station, today it is a covered market. Divided into two parts: a food market and a market of memory. The memories are not very many it is an opportunity not to be missed. The prices are very widely affordable and the sellers are not at all aggressive as might be expected (on the contrary). For those who are never went through this kind of kind of market, it is the place to do not miss to Port au Prince.

  • Hippolyte is spectacular and fascinating market. A very lively place. There are objects of Haitian art like spices, such as clothes, finally we have a choice. Me, I bought a beautiful natural drumstick without varnish inside. This market is to see.
