Shopping in Fort de France is very diverse, ranging from the island's largest mall and a main street shopping strip of Parisian boutiques to a spice market where you'll find local produce, spices, and handicrafts. The best buys are the French imports which are priced to be about 30 to 40 percent lower than what you'd encounter in the United States.
