Marche de Fer, Port-au-Prince

(2.8/5 based on 85+ reviews on the web)
Head to Marche de Fer for an authentic Haiti flee market experience. The market continues to sell similar food and clothing as it did 150 years ago, keeping its authentic feel. It teems with vendors who will try to grab your attention and make a sale with you. Find fruits, vegetables, t-shirts, and shoes among other everyday goods. Bring a strong bargaining game as bartering is required to get a good deal. A local guide may be useful to steer you towards the best vendors.
