Castries Market

Listed under Markets in Saint Lucia.

Pin It

The 100 year old Saturday market in the capital of St. Lucia emanates colour from all sides. An impressive variety of tropical fruits and vegetables spreads over the stalls, as well as a selection of local spices such as mace, nutmeg, cinnamon and cocoa. Hot pepper sauces that are native to the Caribbean are also available so you can take away the taste of the market. Adjacent to the food market is the craft market selling local artists wares. Although the Castries market is not huge, it also sells seafood from the region and is an essential part of the life of the capital where you get to see not only the produce that goes into the feisty Caribbean cuisine, but a slice of local everyday life whilst it’s happening.
