It is a busy market of local produce. Friendly people and delicious fruits. We had a brief time in the market and were told Kingstown is even busier during the week when shops are open too.

It was a nice surprise when I visited the market square. They had everything I needed and more and the people were so friendly and willing to give you a bargain. I took my time visiting every stall. I just love this place.

Expected something vibrant to give us a feeling of local life. Well maybe this is the true local life but it felt shabby, tatty and unwelcoming with nothing attracting us to buy or return.

After reading the other reviews I can't believe we are talking about the same place. We disembarked the cruise ship and walked into the town and within thirty minutes had been offered Heroin, crystal meth, cocaine and cannabis! We were a group of young couples...More

Visited on a Saturday afternoon. Saturday is local market day mainly for the locals. Kingston not geared up for tourists.

The central market building in Kingstown meant to house the vendors has been much of a waste of money. The majority are on the first floor (there are 3 floors) or on the outside of the building, choking the roadways. Make shift carts and vendors...More

Not much to see here I'm afraid. Busy, cramped and you can see the poverty. It does give you a feel for local culture, but there's not much of it. Get out and see the island / islands if you can.
