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.
Local market, fruits and vegetables are sold, also arts and craft are on sale there are also booths where a local meal can be bought, spices to are sold. There are public restrooms a small charge of $1 Caribbean
Do you like Tijuana? Do you enjoy vendors hustling you to buy a bunch of crap trinkets that are probably made in China ? Do you like walking through a sweat box? Are you one to favor being exploited? Listen, I’ve been to the floating...More
We were in Castries to have a look around having read our guidebook. The craft market has many stalls in a covered area. Most sell the same items for tourists. Bags, t-shirts, mugs, hats and caps aplenty. There is also a range of soaps and...More

I believe that is the old guy who sits in the inner market. You have to go through the small sales area ,which has side corridors with all kind of vendors. When you follow through to the end, which is about 150 feet ,you reach the inner circle, where they eat their lunch or just talk with each other. It is not much for the tourists ,rather for the sellers of the items around the circle area. Just ask around this circle for BIG G? and see if can come up with an answer. This would be the area to find him.
