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.

Fresh fish was interesting but that was all! Vegetables and fruit were not as fresh as in the supermarkets and the trinkets were pretty poor in both value and quality.

Local fruit and vegetables are available to be bought here but the prices are very high. Bread, snacks and good coffee are available at reasonable prices. Crafts were disapointing and many made in China and not authentic. Very interesting watching the fishermen unload their catches on the wharf.

There is a not a lot here and if you are looking for a bargain, Noumea is not the place to find it. There is a little bit of food and the usual over swimwear clothing and that's about it.

This is the market locals from Noumea attend to get their weekly fruits, vegetables and fish. On a week day, it is rather sleepy and empty like the rest of the town and there are less stalls. 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!
