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

Noumea is probably the most under rated destination I have visited. The markets are a small but delightful experience with local fresh food, meats, fish and pastries (French of course) situated on the harbour in a pretty setting. There are your usual cheap trinket stalls for souvenirs but no worse/better than any other destination. The highlight ironically for me was... More

A great place to get fresh seafood. Fruit and vege here is better than the supermarkets. Go down on the weekend and sit with the locals at the café and have an espresso & croquet madame.

A fun market to go to with the family. I enjoyed seeing the fruit stalls and bought some groceries and pastries there. I agree with the comment by cqwines that if you're self-catering this is definitely a place to go and try fruit and veges you haven't seen before. The kids (9 and 11) enjoyed it a lot and found...

The market is nice filled with fresh produce at high prices. The crafty side is nice to look at trinkets and bits are all very nice but again quite pricey the markets I notice cater to cruise ship goers. I would recommend a look but shop at other places in the city sometimes things have been 50% cheaper else where.

If you are doing self catering accommodation in Noumea this really is the perfect location for you. There is an incredible selection of fruit, vegetables and especially seafood. Make sure you have brushed up on your French and dive in with fruit and vege varieties you won't have tried before. Seafood is cheap, fresh, clean and high quality. A small... More
