Shopping in Roseau

The moment cruise ship passengers step off the boat and walk down to the end of the dock in Roseau, they are greeted with the island's top shopping center.  Even tourists who are staying elsewhere on the island will often plan a day in town specifically to take advantage of the duty-free shopping opportunities.

In addition to the shops at the cruise terminal there is also an area called Old Market Plaza.  Though it used to be a post for slave trade, today it houses three craft markets where visitors can pick up straw and coconut crafts among other things made by local artisans.  If you're interested in sampling local produce, you'll find that available here on Wednesday, Friday, and Saturday as well.
