Small spice and souvenir market. Hard to find a parking spot. All the booths have the same price and do not bargain. Better prices at Canella beach hotel gift shop although the prices are better here than down the road at the artisan market . That place is pricey

We were low in our vegetables and fruits. We stopped here and they had lots of choices. They were friendly and it was not expensive at all. We could not stay here, as other people wanted some of it as well. A must see!

Enjoyed our 30 minute stroll through this beachside local market. The shop stalls are mostly temporary set ups selling souvenirs, flavored rums, bulk spices, arts & crafts, shirts & blouses, trinkets and fresh fruits. You can find some Mara-logo jewelry too. BOTTOM LINE: Is it worth the visit? If you are not going out of your way to get here, sure come check it out, but it is not worth coming primarily just to see it. There is perhaps 30-35 vendors in total. The emphasis seems to be on lots of "homemade" flavored rums. Sorry, I would not touch these with a ten foot pole, even if I drank. I just would not trust it. The pathways between the stalls are sandy and uneven for those with mobility problems. MY RATING: 6/10. Just behind the market is a nice beach.

It is located right in front of the ocean and on the main street in Sainte-Anne so it is easy to get to and pleasantly located. The vendors sell basically the same stuff but some sell better quality than others and some jack up the price depending on the customer. Must do: Buy the fresh juices from the lady who sells fresh juices. Do not buy them from the guy who also sells coconut ice cream. He does not post prices because he charges depending on what he thinks you aught to pay. The juices made by the lady were delicious and fresh and always reasonably priced. The fresh fruits and vegetables are a must. There is a guy who lets you taste things before you buy them so try them if you feel inclined. We went there on our first day and after buying a bag full he gave us two fruits as presents. We returned several times during our visit. His avocados were excellent and all his fruits lived up to their promise. There is a lot of flavored rhum sold here but we don't drink rhum so in all fairness we cannot judge the quality or taste. We did buy several coconut ices and they were absolutely delicious. We did not buy any of the souveniers such as spices or woven baskets because I have so many woven items bought at similar markets that I don't need any more. The market is a good way to get to know the local folklore but not a must every day.

Small, but worth seeing! This tiny market offers fresh local produce and a typical Caribbean atmosphere, away from the more bustling places like Fort de France. The vendors are sweet, welcoming, and the prices reasonable. We purchased most of our spices there.
