At the end of the boardwalk, opposite the ferry station, there is a tourist market where you can buy various souvenirs and local crafts. Admission is free and inside there are variety of stands that sell various products, from typical shirts with the logo of the island and beaded necklaces made with seeds or ceramic figurines. There are also full regalia sandpipers (sarongs, sandals ...). The truth is that I saw nothing original, it looked like a tourist trap. Furthermore, it was a little overwhelming to see so many things for sale in such a small space, they were even hanging from the ceiling! This is the starting point of the Rue de la République, the main street that leads to the heart of the city.
The local market of Saint Pierre is next to the Place Bertin, on the Malecon. It's a metal frame building with all kinds of food, like exotic fruits, freshly caught fish from local fishermen, vegetables, spices, pulses, and spirits. It's not normally visited by tourists, since it's where the locals shop, but Saturday morning is especially lively. There are outposts around the building.
One of the things that attracted the most attention in Bellefontaine is the makeshift fish market along the beach. These are small stalls in which the inhabitants of this small fishing village get to sell the freshly caught fish. There were amazing bluefin loins.
