These markets are open every morning (except for Monday). The fruit and vegetables look fresher than those available in the supermarkets - not heaps cheaper, but definitely fresher. The fish and seafood "hall" is mind-boggling - there is so much choice. There are also stalls that sell "handicrafts" - mostly costume jewellery, some souvenirs and clothing. Best to arrive by...

I've been to the markets on 3 other occasions. They don't really change much and some of the stall holders are a bit of a put off. Good for nick nacks to say you've been to noumea.

If you want to rub shoulders with locals this is the market for you. It sells fruit and veges, food and patisserie items. The locals come here to buy their required items. It is not quite the same as Asian or European markets where you have your sight and smell on high alert but it is interesting to see the... More

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.
