All kinds of Martinique fruits and vegetables are on the market: bananas, pineapples, manioc, carambola and many others. Leave with some of these sun-drenched fruits.

Discovering Creole crafts

Much more than gustatory discoveries, crafts take a predominant place in this market. You will be able to find colorful traditional clothing such as dresses, petticoats, shirts ... Wooden sculptures, hats and other souvenirs of all kinds will be present.
