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

Not really what I expected, found most of the fresh food a little expensive and the souvenirs very over priced. Grabbed a few pastries but didn't really hang around very long. I would not put this on the "have to" do list, if your in the area and it's on then head over and have a look.

We visited around 9.30am on a Friday morning and found a great selection of fruit, vegetables and seafood on offer together with some souvenir stalls. We found it very interesting and spent around 1 hour there also buying some local fruit and veges. Lovely outlook next to the Marina.

The Noumea Municipal Markets were a disappointment to me ... I agree with many of the comments of other reviewers ..... - a beautiful outlook at the marina (probably better than the markets!) - a good range of fruit and vegetables though nothing particularly cheap (as another reviewer suggested if self catering worth visiting) - numerous pastries available at multiple...

We eagerly travelled into the markets to see what unique souvenirs we might find and were disappointed to find all the usual tourist things that can be bought anywhere in the South Pacific. The produce was great and well presented but not what we were looking for. If you want to buy fruit etc then this is the place to... More
