Shopping In Martinique

Martinique Shopping Overview

Some of the lowest prices in the Caribbean for classic French imports are found in Fort-de-France. Perfumes & cosmetics, scarves, fine china, crystal, leather goods, high fashion and gourmet treats are handsomely presented in the shops and boutiques of Rue Victor Hugo, Rue Moreau de Jones, Rue Lamartine and at La Savane's open-air market. The delightful French rums, Vieux Acajou and Jeune Acajou, are outstanding bargains. Martinique's native crafts such as gold Creole jewelry, bangles, straw & bead work, wood carvings and colorful wall hangings are recommended. Be sure to explore Bezaudin close by Ste. Marie.
