Lot's of fresh stuf offered here and a good place to look for souvenirs (there is a market hall with a few stalls selling spices and other stuff).

“Busy, bustling market”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2012

We didn't want to hang out at the tourist docks (those shops are worth avoiding unless you're trying to buy alcohol for duty-free), so we wandered over to the market when we took the shuttle in from our hotel to downtown St. Georges. Lots of little vendors, many hawking the same spices you'll see just about everywhere, but the ambiance is wonderfully frenetic and not worth missing. Take a walk up the hill toward the fancy marina and you'll find some wonderful artisan shops near the Grenada Museum that are fare nicer than the tourist dives. Friendly and safe city (small city).

Lots of local fruit and tourist items. Lots of people - stay away when the cruise ships arrive.

“Watch out for walking taxi's”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2012

The walking taxi's were incredibly obnoxious. We were able to get rid of two of them (who I thought would never leave us alone). Finally a guy caught us off guard and in conversation said he worked for the Ministry of Tourism. When we told him we were off to a particular place for lunch, he suggested a place to get some local food. He walked us there, and then proceeded to sit with us. My aggravated wife asked if he was on his lunch break and he finally revealed that "No, this is what I do. I'm a tour guide." Needless to say we bolted.

So just be careful if you head down to the market.
