Castries is the capital of St. lucia, it would not take up your entire day unless you enjoy local produce shopping, craft and duty free. Saturdays would be flea market day,look out for the cruise ship schedule this would mean more people and more traffic.

Worth stopping through if you want delicious exotic fruits. The vendors are so sweet and funny. Everything is locally grown and organic. Good for souvenirs too.

Yes there are multiple little places that have food. Just be aware of your surroundings and I would suggest going during the day.
