Marigot Market

For those looking for some hustle and bustle, the lively Marigot Market is the place to go. It can be best described as a melting pot of colours and smells located in open Creole huts along the waterfront. Locals sell fruit and vegetables, spices, local meats and fresh fish as well as handicrafts. Make sure to sample some flavoured rums.


The island of St Martin is a shopper's duty-free paradise, especially for high couture fashion from French and Italian houses, jewellery, leather goods, fragrances from the world’s top perfume companies, fine porcelain, crystal and handcrafts. Passengers from ships touring the Caribbean are drawn to the shops around Front Street in Philipsburg. On the other side of the island, Marigot gathers numerous chic shops and boutiques, and the waterfront West Indies shopping mall proves a temptation for shoppers. If you are looking for local handicrafts and produce, then head to the Marigot Market, where you can purchase tropical fruits, spices, freshly caught fish and unique souvenirs to bring home.
