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.

Not sure the traveller who referred to this as third world was in the right place? It was impeccably clean, full to the brim with a variety of fresh produce and a range of quality arts and crafts. The vendors were friendly and the prices were cheaper than any of the supermarkets we shopped at during our visit.

Nice markets. Nothing too extraordinary. Plenty of locals buying their produce for the day. Nice and easy place to visit.

I cannot believe that anyone would rate this place. A gathering of ugly badly maintained 'huts' with grimy floor and sad understocked stalls of under ripe or half-rotten fruit and vegetables (of which there is hardly any variety) that makes Woolworths look like a gourmet Parisian market.And it was expensive! Ok there were a few stalls of pastries and so... More

We visited the markets while travelling around Noumea on the Hop on Hop Off bus. The market only operates until lunch time so make it one of your first stops. We loved the souvenirs, and local kanak people playing music while we browsed the market stalls. I was thrilled to find a most beautiful artist with mini canvases within the... More
