Marche de Feu - the Iron Market is awesome and my favourite place to shop in Port at Prince! The energy is intense, it’s hot (temperature) and to say its busy is a major understatement. You won’t find a better place to find your souvenirs, clothes, spices, snacks and local produce at amazing prices. I highly recommend taking a trip here. Not for the faint of heart

I mean if you drive by it or you have some free time, well you can stop and walk around but if not you don't have to go there. But it still kinda cool.

For those newbies. Keep your valuables tight and pack small change. Haggle haggle haggle. You'll get the "blan" price. Be prepared to dodge and weave as it's quite a press. Again don't bring anything of value to the market. Remember where you are!! I love the marche and have never had an incident in 2 years of frequenting it. The little old lady selling voudou stuff and plastic is honest and gives fair prices. Greet each person politely with a smile and ask how they are. It helps. And don't forget to say thank you!! Merci un pil!!

I've been to the marche many times and it is the central marketplace in town. Food, clothes (pepe-2nd hand clothes), shoes, toys and electronics can all be found in the marche. This is an open market where individual vendors set up shop claiming a very small place to sell there goods. Over the years, the marche has expanded to many adjacent streets. With cars being allowed to pass through the marche, it can be very dangerous so be-careful. If your doing your own grocery shopping while in Jacmel, expect to be here at least once a day. And bring Haitian currency.

This is one of the highlights of Jacmel, but you have to look for it or you'll miss it! In the dead center of the city, up tiny and windy roads, you'll find yourself here, Jacmel's central market. On normal days, it's crowded with people selling everything from rice to live pigs, lamp oil to tools. Check it out on Sunday when the market is closed, as the absence of crowds will give it a completely different feel. The central market was built over a hundred years ago and is still used today for what it was built! During the week, the area is pedestrian only, but cars small enough to get through are allowed on the weekend. There is a beautiful Caribbean baroque church that over looks the market, too.
