Downtown if you head down town $2.00 (US) taxi / shuttle ride, you will find much better deals at 50% or more off, of the cruise port prices. There is not very much in the downtown area to see or do, and you will have pretty much seen and covered everything on 30 – 45 minutes. However across the street from the Taxi / Shuttle drop off / pick up, there are a number of street vendors that have some very nice local things that are all handmade as well and other normal gifts and souvenirs. The local vendors will even make many items while you wait and customize them. There are only one or two bars, and one or two places to get something to eat, and everything is pretty much outside. Overall Dominica seems to be one of the more depressed islands in the Caribbean, the people are friendly and such, and they want to sale you something, or take you on a tour of their island. Majority of the buildings are older and appears to be run down some, very narrow streets, very few sidewalks, and lack of building codes it seems, as there are many pipes and electrical wires just hanging on the side of buildings, and strung across the streets.

Roseau is very tired and in need of some serious TLC; we visited as part of a Caribbean Cruise. The Old Market Square is bustling with locals and tourists alike and is worth a visit if in town.

Always busy from 7Am till dusk. You will find farmers hocking their fruits and fishermen selling their catch of the day. KFC (one of 2 international chains in Roseau) is right around the corner of the market if you are looking for premade takeout.

Genuine local atmosphere. Unless you're going to cook you probably won't buy much, (except perhaps a few souvenirs) but it's definitely worth the visit.

the spot to get your fresh vegetables and fruits. Fresh flowers such as lilies and local plants can be picked up there especially on Saturdays.
