Marche de Fer, Port-au-Prince

(2.8/5 based on 90 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.

  • This is a special market! One place to visit for sure in Port au Prince without any doubt. This place is a real Caphanaüm but the people and vendor a real negotiators. We visited in February 2017 and ...  more »
  • Kind of big market in chips or you find the same thing to each 3 or 4 kiosk. At your arrival you will be proposed a guide with voluntary contribution (which is actually a kiosk owner and will offer its thing to him!) You will be solicited and harassed not all market vendors who want to sell you.. .so keep calm and if you buy, bargain for half the asking price... We are all rich for them! After half an hour... get fresh air!
