Guadeloupe Shopping, Boutiques
Champagnes and wines from France, as well as imported cheeses, patés and other delicacies line the shelves of small grocery stores and modern supermarchés.
There are also very good local Guadeloupe products that make fine gifts: dark and light rums, coffee beans, unusual spices, handicrafts in pottery, straw, and wicker, hand-painted fabrics and handmade lace.
The traditional markets of Pointe-à-Pitre are animated open-air bazaars that contrast nicely with the chic little boutiques snuggled into city streets. On the beaches, locals offer everything from pastries to hand-made jewelry and create instant boutiques for their craftwork in the shade.
Guadeloupe shops and stores are generally open from 9:00 in the morning to 13:00 in the afternoon and from 15:00 to 18:00 daily, as well as on Saturday mornings. Most stores are closed on Sundays and holidays.
