Spent half of my morning walking around in the fruit and vegetables market. If you are interested in buying local spices and sauces, this is the place to go.

Visited Market Square in Kingstown on Saturday and was a beehive of activity. Lots of fresh fish, provisions and fruits. Good place to immerse yourself into and enjoy local lifestyle. Had a lovely local lunch and brought lots of fruits at very low prices.

The culture of the people in St. Vincent is so unique, this is one of the most popular hang out spots where people gather after a long week at work to begin their weekend with music, dance and drinks

The market is central to the waterfront action and is a visual feast as well as providing all sorts of locally grown staples. Take a bus as parking and traffic are hectic, especially on busy days. Local produce and goods, some being made as you watch. The string of shabby huts beside the water seem a waste of a beautiful... More

If you want to get away from the "touristy" grind, you must visit this market. It was amazing to see all of the local foods and other items offered to locals, and travellers alike. If you like photography, this is a place where you won't want to forget your camera. We were using US currency, I would suggest bringing lots... More

Quite dirty however, the friendliness of the locals is very welcoming very busy on Fridays and Saturdays wouldn't really recommend anyone here

if you want to buy fruit and veg then this is the place to go. If you want anything else - don't bother.

Filled with buyers and sellers, spices, fruits, veg, jewelry and souvenirs you are sure to find yourself immersed in the local culture here. In addition to the standard fare you'll find homemade sugar and peanut cakes, biscuits, hot sauce and other local items. Fri and Sat are the busiest times as locals are stocking up as well.
