A neat place to get the flavor of the island from a local's perspective. We took a Jittney / minibus into town also good for island flavor and very inexpensive. There are a few places with knock off sunglasses and handbags and the like but most of the vendors are selling local produce. Other than a mango or two and... More

Bustling extra-ordinary market where you can view Cap'n Bligh's infamous breadfruit in all it's glories. This is a Vincentian market so don't expect tourist fripperies but glory in the essential qualities of a true Caribbean experience..

The people are eager to please you, and give you the best bargain. There is a wide variety of fruits, herbs and vegetable. Even fish - four pounds for $10.00. (small fish, robin).Seems like the lower you have to stoop, the cheaper the price.

The sights and sounds of this thriving market make for an interesting exploration. The ambiance of the morning market is something that you need to sample first hand, no description can really do justice to this unique experience. Don't miss the opportunity to see and enjoy the atmosphere of the daily market with all the local traders vying for customers.

The Market is very picturesque and has a lot of things to offer, that you might not even know. Always worth a look. The vendours are friendly and always up for a talk. Just be prepared to pay 3 times as much as a local for whatever you buy - be it cinnamon bark, or nutmeg. Still cheaper than at... More

Definitely a local experience. Not too keen on the overly enthusiastic vendors selling 'chichi' - a tiny silver fish - which can get a bit messy, especially when it's raining. Nice, colourful display of produce...what you see in most Caribbean islands.
