We went to the market on Wednesday (the market is there Wed. and Sat.) for some local shopping and to buy souvenirs. If you are interested in shopping, this is the place to check out.

It was a nice area, with some cute shops, but the islanders are very aggressive. The restaurants give you the bait and switch too so be careful.

There is a lot of duplication here, but if you walk though all the stalls you will find enough to make it worth your time. We like to get jerk and "magic" spice to take home so that we can be reminded of our island vacation in the dark of winter. The vendors were polite and happy to answer our... More

After much searching we found an ATM at Credit Mutuel in Marigot that gave US dollars or Euros, your choice. It's right up the street from the Marina. There is another one at the shopping center turn off to Hope Estate coming from Orient Beach. After going to ATM, have lunch at Enoch's Place on the corner. Wonderful food!

Barter with the vendors. They are likely to come down in price over 20%. Hats from 25 will go down to 15 us dollars, etc. Many vendors have similar items, so look before you purchase.

We always stop by the Open Market at least once during our annual stay. There are a variety of items in the market which are unique but I do know that they do not all come on every Market Day. There is a wonderful booth with garnets but I have missed her several times- hope to catch her today when... More

Marigot's open air market is a lot of fun for my family and I. We like to walk around and browse the items, and it's even possible to bargain for items (won't work for everything though). Like others have said there is a lot of the same things, but there is other vendors that have unique items. Definitely worth stopping... More

It is true, as other reviewers have suggested, that there is a lot of mass market, cheap stuff here - but if you will be patient and look through each aisle, there are numerous local crafts-people selling handmade jewelry, artwork and the like - I have some beautiful earrings - a very cool hair accessory (never seen anything remotely like...

Didn't buy anything when I heard some of the vendors complaining about Americans...get a clue people. Every market stall had the exact same thing literally & the prices were high. When I commented that I bought the same necklace in Grand Turk for half the price they were asking the woman told me "well this is St Martin."

Lots of tables with basically the same things. Good cheap ($5-10) tee-shirts and hats, etc. A good way to blow a couple hours strolling and haggling. Be aware a lot of shops close from 1-3 pm for siesta. And on a slow day tables just close up early. The kind of thing da wife loves to do.
