The market is separated into different buildings, and provides enough space for you to walk around without the claustrophobic feeling that some busy markets have. I liked the large variety of vegetables, fruit and fish, though I wonder how much really was imported or locally produced...

of course you dont need to wake up at 5 am to visit this market but a visit is definitely worth. we have enjoyed a nice breakfast at the only bar inside the market and we really enjoyed the athmosphere. you can find many things at the market: vegetables, fruits, souvenirs, flowers and so on. opened from 5 to 10...

The markets we visited were just outside the docks where the ship docked and have two levels. Upstairs was where most of the souvenirs can be found at reasonable prices. They take Australian dollars but you may get your change in French Francs. On the ground floor is where the tours are organised and buses are boarded at the side... More

Disappointed. Most things on the stalls were same as shop price. A few local artisans with unique wares. Reasonable prices on shell pearl jewellery. Good to stock up on local fruit for breakfast, and bakery. Fish market interesting to look.

OK for a quick browse but it's pretty basic so if your after something Nuevo Caledonian you may disappointed. Food markets attached do not shine in freshest fruit and veggie produce although seafood seemed fresh and in good variety. In the middle if the food section there is a bustling little cafe so if you just arrived from a cruise... More

Our time was spent in the fish market and the quality was good and the service friendly. The range of fish was not excessive but adequate and it clearly was fresh and straight out of the sea that morning. Although there was little English the merchants were friendly and helpful. It is worth a viist and parking is available and... More

Fruit, veges and local arts. This gives you a look at Noumea from both the local and tourist views. The fish market is busy and interesting. Closes at noon so get there by 10am if you can as some start closing after 11am.

We visited the Noumea morning markets when we were on a cruise on the Celebrity Solstice visiting Noumea recently. As our ship was there on a Sunday, the markets were just about the only thing that was open for tourists to view. Fresh produce is available and seafood, plus various touristy items, souvenirs, clothing, jewellery etc. for sale. It was... More

We had a short time to visit while our cruise was in port, a trip to the local market is usually on our 'to do' list. This market is nothing like I've experienced in the many other countries I've visited. It is definitely geared for the tourists with a lot of very average and overpriced souvenirs. If this isn't what... More
