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.

It was once but the practice was ended in the late 1800's. Today it is where the Havensight cruise terminal shuttle vans leave you off near Main Street. This is a small street vendors market with the usual stuff for sale.

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
