Castries is the capital of St. lucia, it would not take up your entire day unless you enjoy local produce shopping, craft and duty free. Saturdays would be flea market day,look out for the cruise ship schedule this would mean more people and more traffic.

Worth stopping through if you want delicious exotic fruits. The vendors are so sweet and funny. Everything is locally grown and organic. Good for souvenirs too.

Spices and fruit sections are really unique, will likely never forget the smell of all the spices combined in a single area. There are also a handful of actual artists selling their goods. Many of the vendors are just buyers and resellers of products not...More

Yes there are multiple little places that have food. Just be aware of your surroundings and I would suggest going during the day.
