Marigot Market, Marigot

3.3
#2 of 15 in Shopping in Saint-Martin
At Marigot Market, peruse the cornucopia of goods that the local vendors have to offer. Described as a lively melting pot of colors, smells, and sounds, the market features everything from clothing, jewelry, and pottery to spices, fruits, vegetables, meats, and fish. Witness how the locals and foreigners alike zealously barter under the Caribbean sun. Amid the sea of kiosks and stalls, a stone statue and a huge painted fresco commemorate all black female market sellers. Note that the moment cruise ships sail into the harbor, goods usually become generic and variety diminishes.

    Not really interesting. Ds cheap clothing stands. Some merchants of fruits and vegetables in small amount and a merchant of fish without too much varieties. Marigot Bay and the authentic streets of the city have a unique character. Really beautiful. The seller of lemonade in the market House is friendly and drinks are cool. $ 4 per litre. (to share)

    Fun open air market with tourist tat but also nice fabrics and plenty of hats to keep the sun off. Some good fishmongers, where we got two excellent big eye red snappers, which we grilled on the boat, rubbed with island spices we got from another vendor.

    There's a nice gazebo but the vendors charge prices specially inflated for tourists.
