A good chance to meet local vendors
Mar. 2020 • Couples
Always a great place to visit! We enjoy at least one stop at the Spice Market in St.George when we are in Grenada.

Lots of local fruits, vegetables and spice - plus anything else you could want from clothing to snacks.

We purchased fresh Ground Nut Sugar Cake, spices, smoothies, fresh fruit and coconut water.

Part of the fun is chatting with vendors - ask questions and just say ‘no thank’ you if you don’t wish to purchase something or already have.

Busy and yes...selling touristy stuff, but vibrant with wonderful local flavour!
Mar. 2020 • Couples
The market is busy and yes...there is a lot of touristy stuff for sale. Saturdays are the best days but at any time the market may be crowded with cruise ship visitors. Go early to buy fresh produce with the locals. Take the time to talk to the vendors...fabulous warm and friendly people! Just outside the market., a short wander away, is the Fish Market...worth a look too! Fresh caught tuna and Black Jack freshly caught when we visited.

Don't go
Feb. 2020 • Couples
This place is full of people who prey on tourists. They all sell the same stuff, and can be very persistent.
Their favourite trick is to agree to a price, then tell you it is US dollars not XCD.
If you do go, be sure to agree on the currency before you start to haggle.

The area is rife with large numbers of aggressive independent tour operators who will not accept "no thank you" and will hound you to buy an island tour. Also prepare for the occasional beggar and/or thief.

Good place to buy nutmeg
Jan. 2020
Just outside the Cruise Port Terminal. All merchants sell about the same things. But you will find the spices you like, jellies and local made souvenirs, especially nutmeg which is their national spice. Be careful with what you want to bring back to Canada or the USA. No nuts or seeds. Spices and Jellies should be ok in a sealed jar or container.

Spice Market - not great
Jan. 2020
Went on a Saturday to see maximum number of stalls. Mainly spices or fruit/veg and all the stalls looked the same. Area around was difficult to negotiate as uneven ground and crowds of pedestrians plus cars. Made us appreciate how lovely our hotel was in comparison,and craft stalls there sold spices very reasonably as well as craft items not seen in the market.

Beautiful Caribbean island but...

If your in the market for some spices this is your stop. Every booth has spices and walk about sellers. We did not dare buy anything that was not in a “sealed” container. If you bring those non sealed items back into the US your likely are not going to be able to keep them. Three stars are for the hecklers that attack you as soon as you get though the cruise terminal.

Small market surrounded by shops
Nov. 2019 • Couples
Small indoor/outdoor stalls for spices, cloth, fruits. Same commercially packaged spices at almost all stalls. Very friendly shopkeepers. Cheaper spices here than in stores or malls.
