It seemed that there were lots of vendors but it seemed that most had the same things. It was they typical island stuff. We saw a few artist that had some unique things. Overall we liked shopping in Philipsburg better.

I'm not much into shopping, but my Norwegian cruise travel companion and I did stop here and got a few things for family at home. As an aside we paid $10 for Caribbean Reversible Dolls which at later ports went for $30! BUT the real attraction here was the opportunities for STREET PHOTOGRAPHY.

I just purchased a watch for My wife. I originally had gone to the Phillipsburg Front St. location and had negotiated a price ~10 % off for a Cartier(which is a good buy). I called on Friday and found out they were closed and that I could go to the Marigot location. The location is somewhat compromised in terms of... More

Marigot Market is a place that offers shopping for clothing, spices, fresh fish and has numerous restaurants. The pier where you can catch a boat to Anguilla which is a 20 minute ride but take your Passport because they are British. When you arrive go to Shoal Bay for sunning; you will feel like you died and went to heaven;... More

This is an arts/jewelry/beach attire mini market. A good place to come for souvenirs. It is not big at all -so come and check it out if you have time

Don't go unless you like to collect junkie trinkets and bad shirts. It's interesting to see all the booths all with the same colourful shirts for sale and tshirts and hats for $5. But seriously, if you're looking for something fun, skip this place.

Unless you absolutely have to have a St. Martin hat or some other useless trinket with St. Martin scrawled across it, there really is NO reason to go here. It is Groundhog day repetitive and tired location that sells the exact same thing in each booth and the French side is significantly less friendly than the Dutch side. Do yourself... More

Best time to go is when there are no cruise ships in and you don't trip over badly dressed rude American tourists. A lot of the stalls sell the same thing but there are individual vendors who sell some very unique stuff and it's well worth a visit. Can get very hot as it's pretty exposed.

We were told this market opens Wednesdays and Saturdays. We found going on Wednesday at 10 am best, just after they open booths and before bus tour to beat the crowds. You can get around the whole thing in couple hours. A Lot of booths sell the same thing, cloths, souvenirs of sorts but a few stand out selling unique... More

The food market is only open 'til 2 pm. The flea market stalls seem to stay open longer. The people are so nice that you would want to buy something. It is in a beautiful setting overlooking the harbour. The reason I gave this an average is because most of the stalls sell the same things and at the same... More
