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.

The Market was the beginning to a great walk in which we ventured around checking out various shops and restaurants. I enjoyed walking past the African Dutch and French architecture.

The place sells shirts, bracelets and other things you would find in a gift shop type place for a cruise port. They have jewelry and some other things as well. I didn't buy anything but the prices weren't insane or anything.

I like to shop in the markets however they will bargain with prices but they end up being higher. Go to the shops in town along the waterfront and they are cheaper and don't haggle.

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

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
