“t shirts”(33 reviews)
Formerly a slave-trading market, this open-air fruit and vegetable market is a great place to stop and sample the fresh produce, especially the local specialty - genips.

This is where a lot of the locals set up to sell their wares. The size was small the day we went but it was off-season and a day when no cruise ships were docked so maybe that is why it seemed small. You will...More
