Owner description: 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.

Great selection. Friendly staff. Easy in and out. Prices are reasonable. This is a place where you can get a great deal for your dollar. I have been here many times. It is away from the crazy cruise ship tourist traps that will leave you penniless.

Everyone is reviewing Peddlers Plaza. It's fine for a cheapy haggle a little area. Market Square is several blocks west and home to, well, nothing. Once in a while ther's somone selling preserves but genearlly it's empty. Stay in the busy plaza instead.

Nice variety of old & new vendors and their different methods of selling. Some quiet, some aggressive, some just casually engage in conversation & 1 sings her wares away. All & all a nice market experience. Go check it for yourself.

lots of choice and even more colour! I particularly like the jewelry and bought lots for my family. The hair braiding reminded me of my first visit there in 96 when my daughter had her hair braided.

If you ever want to know what it feels like to live a real island life! Or what it felt like there 100 years ago... you MUST go to this location. Not that it is super exciting.... but it is the island and it gives you the real deal!
