Formerly a slave-trading market, this open-air fruit and vegetable market is a great place to stop and sample the fresh produce, especially the local specialty - genips.

many different vendors are packed into this area but they are all very well set up - there is food, drink and water available. Prices were reasonable.

This is a very typical Caribbean market not far from the cruise ports and adjacent to Main Street shopping, with lots of vendors selling various t shirts, Caribbean style clothing, scarfs, silver jewelry, shot glasses, magnets and other souvenir items. Fun to walk through but...More

You do not need lots of time to visit the whole place. It is colourful and offers several small shops. Continuing eastbound from the Market Square, you get to see the Emancipation Park, sit down, or simply continue to visit the fort.

It's the same junk available on the boat, and anywhere else in town. If you're looking for local, or culture, look elsewhere!

This place is within walking distance to the cruise ship docks. Good place to find hats and swimwear.

lots of stalls which all sell the same stuff.... also in the "main shopping streets" there are many "sponsored merchants" If you are touring other islands save your money for them as the duty prices are lower elsewhere

A great place for all your souvenirs. Fun place to walk through but every table has just about the same things. You can barter. Just wished that the tables were not placed so close together. To answer question about strollers, it would be difficult to...More

If your looking for negotiations to be had, this straw market in downtown St Thomas is the place to go. A lot of souvenirs to be had.

There is no beach close to the market. Having gone to the market and the beach, I highly recommend going to the beach and skipping the market. The market is full of tourist t shirts and trinkets. Seriously it is junk... More
