Located on the waterfront, St. Paul's open market is considered the most beautiful and most picturesque of the island. It is open all day on Friday and the morning on Saturday.
This is an exotic, colourful market with over 300 stands offering a complete panorama of the local specialities of the island. You'll find a section dedicated to the country's cuisine with a display featuring varieties of spices, Creole specialities such as samosas, and multitudes of seasonal fruits and vegetables. Revive yourself with freshly made juices and drinks, sample snacks or dine in one of the restaurants located within the market or in the immediate vicinity. A visit to the market is a gourmet experience that allows you to enjoy the warm atmosphere of the city while tasting the local Creole specialities.
A second part of the market is dedicated to Réunion crafts where you can find basketry and multi-coloured hats for sale.
