Marie-Galante Shopping, Boutiques
Travelers should be able to find most of the things they need in the interesting shops of Grand-Bourg, Saint-Louis or Capesterre. Marie-Galante offers a growing number of boutiques for tourists, featuring jewelry, pottery, sculpture, embroidery, lace and other textiles. Traditional dolls and masks, as well as confections and locally-produced coconut and manioc flour are also available. Of course, fine rums and delicious fruit punches can be found everywhere. The open air markets in Grand-Bourg and Saint-Louis offer a more traditional shopping experience.
Most shops in Marie-Galante are open Monday - Friday from 9:00 to 13:00, then close for a long lunch, reopening at 15:00 or 16:00 for several more hours. Some shops are also open on Saturday mornings. Prices are in Euros and credit cards are widely accepted.
