Visited the market in grenada one lunch time, easily found a bite to eat and felt no pressure to buy from the spice stalls, which there were many. Worth a visit.

if you are in Grenada on a Saturday morning, the market square is the place to be. All of the growers are set up in the market stalls selling local home grown produce, and it's the place where everyone comes to shop for the weekend. It's a lively, loud, friendly, and vibrant town centre all packed into 100m by 100m,... More

The market square sells local produce which is fair cheaper than the imported fruit and veg in the supermarkets. And of course there are spice stalls wherever you look. The stall holders will chat to you while you browse, but I was not put under pressure to buy at any time. However, you can bargain without causing offence - especially... More

Interesting observation of the local flavour of Grenada, lots of action on a Saturday morning as the locals sit on sidewalk with their treasures for sale, alot of spices, fruit, veges. Be careful on wet days as surfaces a challenge to conquer...flat shoes a must! If you have time wander the fish market and gruesome abattoir...along the water quay. Very... More

Stalls are all very similar, you can haggle but not too much. People are very friendly and there are some hidden gems to be found. But all in all its much the same on most stalls.

it was a sunny day that I had a chance to visit the Market Square in St. George Grenada. I took the local bus which would charge me a $2.50 ECC money to get me to the market. The Market was small but had plenty of fruits to choose from especially fired corn that was cook from the small charcoal... More

I've been on several occasions and my experience has varied every time. Best busy time to go is Saturday morning! Everyone is out. If you go at 2pm on a weekday afternoon it's quiet. I don't particularly like the new configuration but - the traders are there. It's mainly a spice market so whatever you are looking for - cinnamon,... More

My husband and I came here during one of our rainy days of our honeymoon this past July, and were disappointed in the area. The minute we got out of our taxi we were harassed by the locals wanting to "show us around as our tour guide" which we declined as we knew that they would expect payment. We did... More
