Dominica is a small island, Roseau is a good size town/city, but the shopping is weak.....Old Market is cobblestones as noted (can be hard to walk on, it's so uneven) and vendors are setup in wood-frame booths, outdoors, in middle of town....similar to a USA Flea Market. Gets pretty hot in the afternoons! You can be done shopping in about 2-3 hours MAX here! Walk the neighboring streets (narrow alleys practically) and you'll find a nice art store. leather store, shoes and a few other "junk shops" to pick up your souvenires.....

Typical items for sale at the Old Market are t-shirts, towels, some nice baskets (local made), postcards, small trinkets / toys, some made from coconut shells. Many thing are made in China or Thailand, go figure!

Limited selections, but this is due to small size of island. Vendors typically bargain, but things are not as cheap here as you might find in Mexico.

Just a few blocks away is the Fort Young Hotel which has some higher end jewelry stores...they really cater to the cruise boats, which stop about about 1x week, on Tuesdays I think.
