Don't expect the sensory overload of a market in India, Indonesia, Vietnam, Turkey or Victoria Market in Melbourne. Nouméa is a small city and many locals would shop for fresh food in the big supermarkets (which are also full of imported French products). The morning market is right on the harbour and there is plenty of parking. There are stalls... More

Sunday markets are not for the locals as it was not bustling with activity or local flavour. Disappointed with the lack of variety. Was looking for an item to epitomise the culture but left without buying an item. Beware buying any wooden products and ensure they are free of holes and splits.

This place was the first stop on the hop on hop off buses. It was a Monday and even then, not many stores were open. The gift ware was not cheap and we did not end up buying anything there. Other stalls sold fruits and veges. Not busy when we were there as it was pouring with rain. Do not... More

Like many, we arrived by ship and on a Sunday too! Noumea is an interesting port to arrive at and it is big and impressive. The nickel mining dominates half the skyline but the port is sleepy on Sundays. A stroll through town will show there are plenty of restaurants to cater for tourists and there are some stylish buildings... More

Great place to see the locals and the fresh vegetables & fruits of the area. Can find the traditional souvenirs also. Best visited on fridays and the weekends.

I was a little disappointed with what I could buy but really enjoyed the atmosphere and the market square was very tropical.

An easy walk from Noumea's City Centre. Most stall holders speak some English. Some stalls are the same as the city port market, with some prices being a little dearer. However, this market has a large variety of gifts.

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...
