My girlfriend and I stayed at the nearby Fort Young Hotel. We learned the square becomes a ghost town as soon as the cruise ship departs the harbor. But when happening, it's a pretty charming little square. Lots of vendors selling handmade knickknacks. Excellent produce,...More

Dominica is very poor. However the people are warm and friendly and have set up lovely stalls. Keep your eye out for items made on the island. All T-Shirts, bags etc come from China.

Nothing much to write about and one can see it all in a few minutes. A small harbour town with the usual peddling of souvenirs.

This is a really difficult place to find and murder to park. Vendors tend to sell all the same vegetables and prices don't seem to vary - but quality and freshness does,.

This place is important as a barbaric slave market. Now a bustling market used by locals and tourists. Good place to start a walking tour of the city

As Roseau is crowded city, this is no exception. The square is much of the same thing. The vendors are friendly and not aggressive.

We stopped back to pick up a few fruits to munch on before returning to our cruise, as it was near the dock. Delicious!

I want to say there was at least one vendor selling post cards at the old market behind the museum but I really can't recall definitely. Post office is right down the street though, across from the pier from the ferry dock.
