Stop for a spot of bargain hunting at Market Square, a colorful flea market with plenty of souvenirs to take home. Serving as a produce market and community meeting venue for nearly two centuries, the square first appeared on maps as early as 1836. The market remains a bustling spot for vendors to sell their wares-- peruse your way through items ranging from St Thomas tees to potatoes. Haggling is expected so find something you like and start chatting to one of the friendly vendors.

  • Only four stars because vendors are still suffering because of the hurricanes. Fish and soup are still FRESH!
  • What an amazing historical site. If you live here or are just visiting, head down to the market on Saturday morning. Feel free to ask the local vendors about their locally grown items. They are proud of their products and are happy to talk you about their items. Try a new fruit or veggie. You won't regret the visit. Also, cash only.
  • Not really a shopping area. More for drunks. On Saturday the farmers market is open for local produce and island remedies and locally caught fish.
  • Saturday morning farmer's market. Fresh fruit, vegetables, local honey and fresh fish. They will clean the fish for an additional price.
  • Love the new market area
