If you don't mind being bumped and pushed while shopping, you won't mind being in market square. Though you get a lot of home grown (organic) produce at a decent price, this can be overwhelming for people sensitive to noise and crowds. I prefer to visit early in the day before it gets too hot or busy.

This is honestly not a location for tourist, but there is a lot of variety here and products are not bad price wise.

Immerse yourself in the hustle and bustle of the capital’s market streets. All the different smells and aromas, everyone seems to know where they are going apart from us tourists who were just ambling along enjoying the atmosphere. Even though there were crowds of people we didn’t feel too out of place and didn’t get hassled. Everyone was very helpful... More

I have been coming to St Vincent for years and the capital is going backwards in my opinion. We checked out the town (Kingstown) and the market area and it's fine for locals to buy and sell the stuff they need but St Vincent needs to develop and move forward especially if the Argyle airport brings is to bring people...

We arrived by taxi and left to look around the market stalls. There were many people going about their daily business and we were made welcome by the locals as we walked around. We left during school leaving time which made it congested but no problem. We visited the port too and just watched all the locals doing their stuff.... More

We were there during carnival and the place was buzzing Kingstown is not great to be fair but everybody we meet was really nice and friendly, don't go looking for luxury as it is hard to find

The Market is quite busy on Fridays and Saturdays. Lots of vendors with fresh produce and super sized ground provisions. You can also find vendors with grocery items and clothing. The mini bus terminal is nearby you can walk over or a conductor will find you and put you in a bus!

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.
