Day Trips - The Old Market : Discover Dominica, the Nature Island


The Old Market

The Old Market

The cobblestoned Old Market in Roseau was once a slave auction, public meeting, and punishment area.

It has now been converted to a craft and souvenir plaza with vendors of tropical fruits, handicrafts, and local essential oils and spices.

This historical area is a very short walk from the Cruise Ship Terminal.
