“Nice little market to buy spices”
Reviewed March 30, 2013

It is worth going to the market on a Saturday when all the traders are there to sell their wares. Yes you are approached by people as you walk past their stalls, but if you say no thanks, you are left alone. I bought some spices and don't know whether I got a good deal, but it wasn't a lot of money. It is also worth visiting the shops in the cruise line terminal nearby.

“Hard sell”
Reviewed March 29, 2013

The market was fun but beware of the hard sell. Spices, tee shirts, hats, trinkets its all there. You will be hard pushed to say no, and the locals will push hard to get a sale.

“Farmers' market great place to pick up spices”
Reviewed March 26, 2013

But better place if you're looking for fresh produce. Also many shops in the area including a duty-free store in the cruise ship tunnel of shops in the mall, but I thing the best prices were at the Best Little Liquor store in the airport. Best booze, chocolate, and hot sauce prices we found.

“Market on a Saturday”
Reviewed March 26, 2013

Had a lovely hour or so walking round the market and buying spices. People there are very friendly and don't bother you too much.

“spices fruit vegetables”
Reviewed March 20, 2013

saturday is popular because the vendors come from all over the island. Island variety is limited. Not too much imported. The fish market has the freshest catches and the mongers know how to fillet their catch. Get ready to be bumped and you wont have to haggle price the price is already right.
