But it is still open and have a proper butcher with a roast chicken section and some stalls selling pastries . The best... More

With a friend I came to visit Noumea and we were just hanging around and visiting from place to place. One of the things we wanted was getting to the local market and checking out the local products. Access by bus was easy and the first thing we wanted was to check out the fish market and it was quite... More

Not a large market but a good variety of fresh seafood, food(including a delicious cheese stand), produce and souvenirs. We were not there very long but it was interesting watching the locals in action and wandering around. If you are looking for an early morning excursion it is worth a visit.

A Saturday morning in Noumea is not complete without a fresh pastry and a strong espresso enjoyed standing up at the central bar while you attempt to translate the conversation of locals. Then buy seasonal fruits, spices, honey, locally made goats cheese, sausage and salami before heading into the fish market to buy the world's greatest tuna - sashimi quality... More

This was nice market, fresh produce and the people watching was good value- we had hoped to pick up some produce cheaper than around the city but it all remains expensive ...but that is the country! Other stalls were boring, souvenirs etc were imported and really just was the normal run of tat we had seen other places in the... More

Very little seemed locally crafted or authentic. Mostly mass produced & overpriced. Is a short distance from cruise ship dock and seems priced to match. Prices & quality seem to be reflected across Noumea. Give it a miss!

If you staying in Noumea and are self catering this the place to go. The variety of fresh seafood is amazing, The fruit & vegetables very very fresh. Prices in francs & Australian dollars.

These markets are open every morning (except for Monday). The fruit and vegetables look fresher than those available in the supermarkets - not heaps cheaper, but definitely fresher. The fish and seafood "hall" is mind-boggling - there is so much choice. There are also stalls that sell "handicrafts" - mostly costume jewellery, some souvenirs and clothing. Best to arrive by...

I've been to the markets on 3 other occasions. They don't really change much and some of the stall holders are a bit of a put off. Good for nick nacks to say you've been to noumea.
