Great little market to grab a few souvenirs to take home to family. Only filled in about an hour of the day which was good, left us plenty of time to go snorkelling. To get here you can jump on the bus at cruise terminal and get off at second stop.

After having trouble locating the market, due to very poor directions, we were pleased to spent a couple of hours 'browsing' and people watching. The local fresh produce was well worth the visit and the huge selection of locally caught sea food was fabulous. I found this the best place in town, to buy local souvenirs; the stall holders also...

We were able to self-cater in Noumea so this was good. get there before 9.30 if you want fresh seafood. 9am would be even better. Take a shopping bag. If you buy fresh seafood, ask for a bag of ice ( la glace) to keep your fish cool). we got them to slice beautiful fresh tuna for us. Melt in... More

This local market has plenty fruit and veg stalls, a butcher with meat and poultry. Also plenty fish stalls.Outside in the car park more stalls, mainly selling clothes for women. A good mix of stalls.

Where the locals gets their fruits/vegetables and seafood. Not anything spectacular by international standards, but has a nice local feel and is the only market in noumea. Theres a small kiosk where you can get the usual croque monsieur, coffee and orange juice. Walk around amongst the locals and check out the local produce. It is true there isnt overly... More

The busy Noumea markets may only be small by international standards, but the atmosphere is friendly and the produce fresh. The fish market made me want to sample the amazing variety of seafood and the fresh fruit and vegetables were reasonably priced. We bought a green coconut to drink the juice and listened to buskers singing American songs half in... More

We were staying in a self catering apartment so a trip to the markets seemed a must. The produce wasn't as various as in Sydney and definitely not cheap. There was not a lot of jostling and the stalls all sell a similar variety of fruits and veg all at very similar prices. We paid about 400cpf for a pineapple... More

Noumea is an interesting place and we love markets so we arrived early. However, if you do not have a command of the French language you will not get far because the French are not interested in speaking English even if there is money to be made! So we finished up looking and taking photographs and after an hour or... More

This weekend morning market lacks everything you would expect of a French market. There is no amazing aroma of baked goods, no whiffs of great coffee. You will find local produce, meat and seafood. You will find a small selection of souvenirs and handicraft. None of it is too appealing. Don't bother waking up early for this, sleep in instead.
