Socialise and exchange smiles with the friendly Grenadian vendors and their colourful kiosks and craft displays. In short, come along to our market tour for a lively day of colourful shopping experiences and the very best local buys.

The city’s Market Square is a dynamic and noisy place bursting with energy and colour, situated right at the heart of the capital’s civic life, right where it has remained for the past 200 years. This is the main site for purchasing local produce and fresh fruit as well as being the focal point for parades, carnivals, political speeches and religious activities. In the more recent years, the surrounding area to this market has become the starting point for minibuses that go to the outer areas of the island. Many say that no Grenada visitor should leave without paying a visit to the Saturday morning market.

Every Saturday morning the Market Square shines at its most bright, showcasing the best of everything it has to offer as it is invaded by hundreds of locals and curious visitors that flock the place in search of typical items and to enjoy the lively atmosphere. Here you’ll find every type of Caribbean fruit and vegetable imaginable, from fresh coconuts and watermelons to breadfruit and plantains. But you will also find fine arts & crafts that will make for perfect souvenirs and gifts to take back home for family and friends. Handmade jewellery, ceramics, wooden figurines are some of the little treasures you will be able to find scattered around the market. You can also browse for the most famous and popular straw goods: hats, baskets of all shapes and sizes and typical rag dolls that anyone visiting the Caribbean simply should not leave without one!

The stalls are brightly coloured and offer a refreshing shade from the sun with its picturesque array of colourful umbrellas. You can walk along with a spring in your step as you move to the rhythms of reggae and soca in the background and you make a short stop for some fresh coconut juice, cheaper than bottle water and much more thirst-quenching too!

For a day of mixing with the locals’ in their daily cultural routine and shopping for the most authentic Grenadian produce the island has to offer this is a trip you shouldn’t miss. Come along to the Saturday Market for a day of fun shopping where you will be leaving with certainly more than a guaranteed wide smile!
