    Out of all the Caribbean islands, Martinique is of the best places for shopping. Most Caribbean islands just focus on the same of old duty free shopping trinkets such as perfumes and watches. In Martinique, you will find luxury trendy boutiques selling labels like Vuitton and La Chamade. Then, there is the local markets. In Martinique, the biggest one is Le Grand Marche' Couvert (“covered marketâ€) and there you will find the famous madras cloth and popular spices.

    Both the “Made in Martinique†and “Made in France†labels are very popular on the island. You can find these bales at The Centre des Métiers d’Art (Center of Trade Arts) on Rue Ernest Deproge. The markets such as Artisanal market and La Savane also offer good shopping opportunities for local artwork like coral jewelry and wooden sculptures.

    Don't miss out the little shops like Galerie Sophen, located in Trois Ilets. This art shop sells cool watercolors. By the way, do not expect to get any shopping done on a Sunday, because most places will be closed.
