Noumea Morning market is interesting to have a walk around. Popular with the locals it is mostly a fish, fruit and vegetable market. There are some interesting souvenirs there but I think it is likely that many of them wouldn't be allowed back into Australia or New Zealand as they are made of wood or contain seeds so take care...

The market is best for viewing locals at the market. Seeing the variety of fresh produce and locally caught fish was interesting. We were off the cruise so really didn't want to spend lots of money on these kinds of things. What we wanted was little trinkets, ice cream and soft drinks but without the local currency we were not... More

We stopped here one afternoon to find some souvenirs to take back home. It is a good sized market mainly filled with local fresh produce. This particular time there was an area outside with additional tents of vendors selling jewellery, toys, clothing etc. Inside there were also quite a few carts selling souvenirs. Definitely worth wandering around.

This was a great part of our visit. Lots of local food and seafood and wares from local people and tourist collectibles. A short walk from the port. Would recommend including in your visit

Big, nice and clean Fresh produce and fish markets;Beautiful bright and natural colored vegeatables almost looked too pretty to eat: As a cruiser, was not able to purchase and take back on cruise; Visiting these markets is an excursion itself; local bus vouchers where available to purchase costing between $10-$15 around Noumea.

This is an amazing Market which sells fresh produce, flowers and crafts. The abundance of fresh fish and meat products are amazing as are the beautiful floral arrangements.

This is our second stay in Noumea, we go to the market often to stock up, browse the lovely and varied foods. So lovely and different to supermarket offerings in Australia. The coffee and food at the food stall is a must do. If you don't eat just watch the hard work and efficiency of staff. Their croque madame's are... More

a typical morning market. crowded with locals and tourists. it's a must see, especially for the fish market as you can see most of the south pacific edible sea food. tons of local fruits and vegetables as well along with souvenirs. coffee and breakfast are also available, don't miss it!

Whilst these are you normal markets it is worth going to view the fresh seafood and local produce. There are also plenty of choices for souvenir and gift shopping at reasonable prices.
