Saturday market on steroids, vegetables, fish, butchers, heaving crowds of people, maniacs with hand carts, loved the seller of brushes.

Kingstown is not the most exciting place in the Caribbean, but I still quite like it - not only for its sidewalks under arches, but also because it is one of the least touristy places around, despite the regular cruise ship stops here as well....More

It all depends what one expects, but this market did not turn me on. The island has a lot of water. However, the produce on the market is lacking both variety and quality. The trinkets, all over the market, are all the same as on...More

The market place was ok to see the local way of life, but there's not much here and in general the capital. Busy, with lots of traffic. Only about 3 main streets to walk around to see the sights. Unfortunately a fairly poor area. Didn't...More

Very busy chaotic and dirty. It should be more organised and better kept. Not many food places but police officer recommended The Altitude sports bar on 3rd floor opposite The financial centre. Good for and drinks and views to the harbour

I personally loved this place as it was unspoilt by tourism but with that you do have to be streetwise. Most people are great but there are a few you have to be wary of. Lively atmosphere.

We went on a Saturday ($60 cab ride RT!) and were told by our hotel (Buccament Bay) incorrectly, that as long as we got there by noon, we'd have plenty of time to walk around and see everything. Wrong! The place essentially closes down at...More

The goods on offer are wonderfully colourful and luscious. If you need any produce this is the place to visit as the variety is quite good. The vendors weren't rowdy or demanding. I wish it were cleaner and more organised but it serves its purpose.
