Took the Lyvai Hop-On Hop-Off shuttle to go to the morning market in Noumea city. Booked bus tickets on the shore with the local company, which is much cheaper then prices offered on the cruise ship. Market was very busy in the morning, lots of stalls, a variety of souvenirs with interesting prices. Definitely a must visit if you're in... More

Always good when visiting a country to see how and where the locals buy their produce Great fruit and vegetables of highest quality and virtually all locally grown Fascinated by the black skinned avocados Quality meat, fish, meat. There are also stalls selling tourist souvenirs and clothing. Same as anywhere and not sure how much is made in New Caledonia!!

We spent 7 days in Noumea and went into the Market on Thursday and then again on Sunday. Sundays market was probably twice the size of the Thursday market. Most people spoke English and were happy to talk with us about the origin of their products. Plenty of food and pastries to purchase and lots of local produce. We got... More

We took the choo choo train the first 2 hours we were here (day stop on a cruise) and came quite late in terms of the market as it closes around 12 so packing up was well under way when we got here, some already closed. Would have loved to see all the color and hustle and bustle of a... More

This market is a good market that is not "touristy" or tacky. Lots of variety and quality handmade items are available. Right near a fresh food market also. Definitely worth a look and it is right at one of the stops on the Hop on Hop off bus route. They accept local currency and also Us and Australian dollars. Not... More

We went to the market one morning. It was interesting, not exciting. We had been expecting (and hoping for) more food stalls - yes you could buy bread and even pancakes, but it was not a meal destination. We did like the guys playing and singing local music near the water.

The free parking within 200 metres is great. It is well organised with different products in each of about four buildings of traditional fare shape. Fish in one, fruit in another etc. Plenty of outdoor stalls too. If prices had been like Sydney, we would have bought heaps. Unfortunately, the value as at March 2017 meant that most items were...
