Although it is a duty free port, most tourists will find the shopping opportunities in Portsmouth to be lacking. If you plan to stock up on goods at discounted prices during your stay, consider a trip to Roseau where you'll have an easier time finding luxury products.
In Portsmouth, you may as well take advantage of the small town feel which promotes mom and pop shops and market hopping in order to secure all of your needs. There is a farmer's market on Tuesday, Friday, and Saturday near the fisheries complex where you'll be able to stock up on produce. Seafood can be bought direct from the boat as local fishermen pull in after a morning at sea. Finally, bread products are baked fresh and sold in bakeries and grocery stores daily. If they run out – which is not uncommon – you can get bread from a bread shack or a bread van.
One of the area's interesting specialty retailers is Indigo Art Gallery. This store is found within eastern Portsmouth. Ms. Frederick's works are made with pen and ink, water color, acrylic paint, and oil pastels -- whatever moves her with regard to a particular piece. When you come and visit, not only will you be able to browse her works, but also purchase some of her fresh juice, rum punch, coffee, and bush teas for you to sip sitting down on a driftwood chair and watch the birds flying over the canopy. If you want to call ahead of time, do so at (767) 445-3486.
Another option is Cabrits Dive Centre, which is found 3.3 mi. (5.4 km) away from Indigo Art Gallery. Specializing in dives of the northwest coast, Cabrits Dive Center is able to focus all their attentions on about 20 dive sites so that they can expertly guide their guests in all location. These sites are also less frequented by other divers, allowing you privacy as you explore the worth underneath the surface of the sea.
