It's worth visiting the market for your locally grown vanilla beans, nutmeg and cinnamon sticks. You can buy outrageously priced souvenirs that repeat themselves endlessly if so inclined (we weren't). But go out back and check out the fresh fruit, coconuts (you have to drink one) and the food alley. We had some delicious food there, simply by joining the longest line! Walk out to the side street and visit the bakery and other little shops. If you need more souvenirs, cross the street and find a little flea market right on the corner (the Arcade, I think). Go all the way to the back of it to catch the water taxi past the huge cruise ships, across to the duty free shopping. The short ride is refreshing, but we found the duty free area a waste of time. Chat with the local vendors... people are so friendly! Way out the back of the market, on the street, taxis (multi seat mini vans) are lined up to take you to Rodney Bay and Gros Islet and other areas, for a couple local dollars. We loved doing this too! Bottom line, go with an easy going attitude have a fun market day!
