Marigot Market

Focus on a place of interest : Marigot Market

marche marigotMarigot market is best described as a melting pot of colours, smells and lively hustle and bustle.
Stalls manned by locals selling fruit and vegetables, spices, local meats and fresh fish caught that day are housed under a mass of open Creole huts along the water front.

Opposite the traditional restaurants adjoining the local market, a magnificent stone statue, erected by Martin Lynn and generously offered by an American to the then Municipalité of St. Martin, commemorates black female market sellers.

In 2006, as part of a series of events for black history week, a splendid fresco, again commemorating female market sellers, was painted by an artist from St. Martin on a wall opposite the market.

Marigot's market also boasts around a hundred craft stands manned by locals and foreigners, spread out in a small arena or in kiosks. Here, creators, artists or simply vendors lay out their wares every day of the week except Sunday.

Visit Marigot market for guaranteed local charm and spiced scents.
