|The market in Marigot takes place on the waterfront beneath Fort Saint Louis, in front of the new West Indies Mall. The chic mall is almost the opposite of the market women honored by the statue in the center of the open air market.|
|The market in Marigot starts with Anguilla fishermen arriving early in the morning on their colorful boats. They clean fish and sell them on the shore. Other shops in market stalls sell fish, meat, vegetables, and spices.|
|There are many spice vendors, lots of packaged spices, and spices in bulk.|
|There are shells, trinkets, artwork, and clothing closer to the center of town.|
|There are plenty of 3 for $10 tee shirts, lots of beach coverups, and hats, but there are also some very well made, beautifully silk-screened tee shirts. There are lots of trinkets from Taiwan, many even have St Martin spelled correctly, but there are also local craftsmen working with local materials to build intricate boxes with inlaid artwork. There are several jewelry stands doing very nice work with silver, larimar, a gem found only on the Dominican Republic, and garnet found right here on St Martin. Many local artists set up stands to offer their paintings and prints.|

The Garnet crafts authentic St Martin garnets into beautiful jewelry under the direction of Joël Sodboker. Come to the Marigot market, see Joël and his wife, Vicky (from NC), and take back a real island souvenir. The garnet is mined near Friar's Bay and fashioned into stunning rings, pendants, earrings, bracelets, and more right here on the island.
