  • Market for souvenirs and other locally made products. Touristy but great if you want something authenticly St. Lucian / Caribbean
  • Not so good. The food parts of the market are authentic and it is interesting to see some of the produce on offer. The 'craft' market is full of chinese-made junk with all the stalls selling essentially the same things. I wouldn't bother with it.
  • National Geographic Traveller Magazine has called this the Number 3 best outdoor market in the world! It really is the best! You have never seen such a variety of fresh local produce like this anywhere else in the world. The fruits and veggies are so fresh that they don't even know they are out of the jungle yet! And every price is negotiable...
  • You get a variety of fresh fruits, vegetables and produce. As well as your dairy products and fresh meat and fish. Not forgetting a full stock craft market and restaurants to grab a fast break fast or lunch.
