Marché aux Épices

The Marché aux Épices (Spice Market) is the city's central market for produce. Located in a covered but breezy and open space, visitors can buy the freshest fruits and vegetables, as well as flowers, oils, spices and decorative items.


Visitors to Guadeloupe can find many imported French luxury items, including fashion, perfumes, jewellery and delicatessen, like cheese and liquor. But the most rewarding shopping comes from supporting local industry, which offers wonderful handicrafts, rum and typical clothes and accessories, among others. Markets are a particular pleasure, filled as they are with the colours, sounds and aromas of the islands, and the numerous speciality boutiques carry some unique gifts and mementos.
