Shopping in Charlestown

Charlestown certainly didn't gain its popularity because of the shopping opportunities it has to offer, but if you're going to do some shopping on Nevis, this is where you'll have the best chance of finding a good deal.  There are a small number of shops selling clothing and souvenir items, plus your typical grocers and pharmacists.

The best thing about shopping in Charlestown is the market place which introduces tourists to a traditional Caribbean way of shopping for every day goods.  Here, there are booths and stalls that sell local produce, crafts, and other handmade items.  The market is open every day of the week except for Sunday, but Saturday is when you'll find the best deals as vendors try and up their sales.
