Shopping in Portsmouth

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. 

Specialty Shops

One of the area's more popular speciality shops is Indigo Art Gallery. They're situated in eastern Portsmouth. A display of work created by Marie Frederick can be seen at Indigo, which is located right next to the cottage where she feels inspired to create her work. Although she was born in Normandy and studied art throughout Europe and in North Africa, she has managed to capture something about the nature of the island in her paintings that even locals have been captivated by. If you want to call before making reservations, you can do so at (767) 445-3486.

Another option is Cabrits Dive Centre, which is located 3.3 mi. (5.4 km) away from Indigo Art Gallery. Cabrits Dive Center certifies over 200 divers every year, and they return again and again to dive in the unique location the this center has claimed as its own. If you're looking to call ahead of time, you can do so at (767) 445-3011.
