Formerly a slave-trading market, this open-air fruit and vegetable market is a great place to stop and sample the fresh produce, especially the local specialty - genips.

Same crap that is usually in all these markets. Even the local craft places had nothing of any talent or excitement.

This area seems like locals frequent daily to get their local fruits and drinks made by locals. A large area in town right in the city area

Be prepared for pushy sellers and be willing to negotiate. Most booths have the same stuff so you can shop around for the best price. T-shirts 3 for $10. Can't beat it.

There was a small open market, guess it would be bigger on cruise ship days. Local crafts and tourist stuff

The vendors are pretty aggressive. There is little chance for a leisurely stroll through the market area without being bombarded at every turn to buy something. You can get something for at least 1/2 of the asking price if you find something you want. I...More

Did a walk through and we were on our way. Local vendors setup under easy-ups and tarps. If you like battering this would be the place to do it. Less formal vendors. Same touristy type merchandise but maybe last years version. :)

Don't even go thinking that this spot has things by local artisans. It;s full of imported stuff. Every other booth has the same thing. Move on to a spot where you'll find the nicer stuff. Unless you're into cheap souvenirs.

There is no beach close to the market. Having gone to the market and the beach, I highly recommend going to the beach and skipping the market. The market is full of tourist t shirts and trinkets. Seriously it is junk... More
