  • Nice market with excellent farmer market. Lots of local crafts and some duty free shopping. Nice restaurants and bars. Can be quite crowded and lots of traffic. Walkable from cruise ship.
  • Wonderful experience. If you enjoy social interaction with friends and strangers alike in you'll love the meet and greet of this market place. You will find everything for seasonings, fruits and ground provisions all fresh picked. You will also find a variety of fish and other meats.
  • Best place for all the local craft and novelty items. Sample some locally made sweets and drinks. Meet warm and friendly people and always ask for a deal. You will get it.
  • Honestly the place NEEDS some love. The market as a wife variety of items but they're poorly packaged and poorly displayed. Also some of the vendors need a lesson or four in customer service!
  • It's a bustling little communes for local but security must be key for you to fully enjoy it.
