“TYPICAL LOCAL SHOPS~ NOT AS MANY AS COZUMEL!”
Reviewed 2 June 2012

Nearly all items except local crafts came from the USA with a 15% VAT. I did find one shop which made local shirts & bags. My shirt ran red for 5-washes, so don't put any thing near your hand made clothes. It was $15 US and nicely made as was the local bag for my lady at $15.

“This is the best of Dominica's food”
Reviewed 24 April 2012

This market has all the character of the old markets. The sellers are so
friendly and have no problem sharing their recipes with you to prepare vegetables that you are not familiar with. I bought a whole tuna yesterday and they prepare it for me ready to go the barbeque. This is mango time! Great selection of of local fruits and veggies. All at a very reasonable price and with a lot of local flavor


A must!

“slave market area”
Reviewed 23 April 2012

Market itself colorful and fun. But most impressed by the actual slave market buildiing and stone pavement, under which allegedly many slaves are buried.

“Variety of Fruits”
Reviewed 23 April 2012

Really if you come dominica, you should also visit there. There are so much variety of fruits that you would not get anywhere else in Dominica as most of all the fammers would meet especially on a saturday, and sale their fruits and vegetables there. So its a nice place to visit especially on saturday mornings.

“Shop until you drop!”
Reviewed 14 April 2012

An historical site hidden in the background. Next to the information centre wall are the Kalingo women with their woven 'roseau' wares. You won't find these on any other islands. If you are lucky you may find the hand-made upside down inside out dolls. Beautiful. Remember these ladies make these beautiful crafts by hand. The prices are reasonable!
