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 loved my visit to Dominica, and I really appreciated my time spent at the old market square. The history runs through the entire place! The stone floor which was built by the slaves themselves, and how bout the museum being right next to it!...More

Downtown if you head down town $2.00 (US) taxi / shuttle ride, you will find much better deals at 50% or more off, of the cruise port prices. There is not very much in the downtown area to see or do, and you will have...More

Roseau is very tired and in need of some serious TLC; we visited as part of a Caribbean Cruise. The Old Market Square is bustling with locals and tourists alike and is worth a visit if in town.

Always busy from 7Am till dusk. You will find farmers hocking their fruits and fishermen selling their catch of the day. KFC (one of 2 international chains in Roseau) is right around the corner of the market if you are looking for premade takeout.

Genuine local atmosphere. Unless you're going to cook you probably won't buy much, (except perhaps a few souvenirs) but it's definitely worth the visit.

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.
