The souvenir section was pretty nasty but the fresh produce side was ok. Had a good coffee and ate a few French pastries. I wouldn’t put the high on the “must do” list in Nouméa

Be prepared for most of Nouméa to be shopping on a saturday morning, and don’t leave it too late as the shops shut at 11.30-12.00. Saturday is the busiest day. Here you can get fresh fruit veg, fish and pastries. Also all the souvinairs etc...More

It was great to see the culture of New Caledonia, especially a chance to taste the French Pastries. The locals were very helpful. For produce, the market was clean and organised. However, the souvenirs were expensive. Worth the visit.

Small by Aussie standards. Outside markets were ordinary and expensive. Inside markets were more interesting with foods and other stuff that I had not seen before. About average prices to what you would pay in Oz but expensive compared to other islands. Port Villa was...More

We docked at Noumea as part of our cruise itinerary. Bus shuttle service from ship drops you off directly at these markets situated above daily tour bookings offices. Very small market selling local souvenirs at affordable prices. Takes about half an hour to explore fully....More

An interesting blend of tourist things and clothes along with a large section for the locals with the local food. The sellers were very happy to chat even if they didn't expect a sale. Loved the huge purple avocados Easy to access via HOHO bus

Visiting this place, open in the morning, we felt like we were living the life of a local ! Prices are quite high, groceries especially but as many things in Noumea. Highly recommended.

The markets are free to visit. They are held in covered areas so sheltered from sun or rain. We went by HOHO bus at $9 Australian. You can catch a local bus or even a taxi. Costs are minimal
