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...

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
