I have to be honest. I am a native and I don't like this place. I avoid it at all costs. There's a level of shouting chaos that does not go well with me. (then again, it's a market so expect nothing else) It's not a matter of "visiting", once you're in the capital city you're likely to come upon... More

Not the place to travel by yourself. Many locals just standing around or trying to sell you spices/trinkets you don't really need. Grenada is a beautiful island but the economy has stalled leaving idle hands.

These are traditional market days in St Vincent. The meat market is Thurs, but I haven't got there yet. Goat and blackbelly sheep are absolutely delicious, but there are a lot of cattle and chickens as well. I have found the grocery supermarkets tend to carry imported food, and the local markets are all locally grown food. Why they don't... More

I find the market a very intersting place due the vast array of wonderful fruits and vegetables for sale. It has more of a buzz on a Friday and Saturday.

More modern architectural enhancement required ...drainage also needs to be enhanced and a central cafeteria upstairs of the roof deck may say wonders for tourism in Kingstown SVG.

The city of Kingstown consists of twelve small blocks that are easy to walk and perfect for browsing. Like many Caribbean capitals, much of the colour and bustle of the island can be found in the Market Square at the corner of Bay and Bedford Streets. This is especially true on Fridays and Saturdays when the vendors bring in the... More
