|About these ratings|
Some found the Castries Market delightful and enjoyed interacting with local vendors to buy items like fresh coconut and unglazed pottery. But others warn you against the less-than-savory atmosphere of the surrounding area. There are also a few overzealous vendors who will try to sell you anything and everything. "On several occasions we were approached by seedy looking characters asking for us to buy a sea shell, or hat made of grass, or a pop corn kernel," notes one traveler on TripAdvisor. Although the market is open every day but Sunday, we recommend you visit on a busy Friday or Saturday morning, when more tourists are around.
The Castries Market is located at the corner of Jeremie and Peynier streets, a block from Columbus Square in northwest St. Lucia.
