Shopping in Dominica Island - authentic goods, best outlets, malls and boutiques

Sunset from Red Rocks, Dominica, Caribbean If you want to bring brand clothes, shoes, and accessories from the trip, you will definitely not find it Dominica. There is not a single shopping center, there are no boutiques or Duty-free shops like in other countries. Shopping here can actually be complicated, as the major part of the products on the island is imported from other countries, that is why their taste can leave much to be desired. And who wants to buy an American cod, which was frozen several times, in the country, where you can buy fresh local fish on the market?
Dominica will be great for those, who are ready not only for beach rest and rare excursions to the historical places but also for everyday active leisure. Diving, water sports, hiking and … Open
However, household stuff, water, and some food can still be purchased without any problems. Well, only if you do not decide to do it on Sunday when no stores are working. However, the difficulties will be after lunch on Saturday, and in the evenings on weekdays. But most shops are already open at eight in the morning. If you want to buy fresh local products, then it's best to go to Roseau. On Wednesday, Friday and Saturday a bazaar is organized at the old market, where they sell both food and various crafts.
Remember that it is often not worth to acquire all sorts of things, especially at spontaneous markets, which are sometimes organized along the roads. Residents of Dominica receive the main income at the expense of the tourists, and therefore attempts to sell the usual aged souvenir bottle as "the old, remained since the time of the colonial rule" are quite common here. However, you can often find a variety of "sea treasures" on such markets for a reasonable price. Beautiful shells, dried and varnished fish and starfish – all this can be purchased in large quantities. However, it is up to you, whether you need such a trivial souvenir or not.

Before buying local spices, think twice. The fact is, there is a chance to bring home not only spices but also pests that will easily settle in cereals and penetrate into any closed cabinets. But you can absolutely safely buy jams from the local fruits. Thanks to the culinary talents of the local hostesses, guava, mango, passion fruit, and pineapple acquire a great taste and a long shelf life. For those, who like spicy food, sauces are a good choice. Most of them are cooked in the best traditions of well-known Asian cuisine so that unprepared people will almost instantly get tears.
Roseau, Dominica If you liked the local coffee, then buy it safely and bring home. From alcoholic drinks, it is worth paying attention to rum. When you buy it, look for the one, which was produced on the island. The imported one is more expensive, and the taste is not the same. If you smoke or want to give a gift to a smoker, you should buy local cigars. Fortunately, you can freely export them from Dominica, as well as cigarettes. If you want, you can visit the local jewelry shops. Island masters make beautiful and not too expensive rings, bracelets, pendants and earrings with precious and semiprecious stones.
One of the most attractive features of Dominica’s hotels is a reasonable price, and the level of services will satisfy even the most demanding guests. The hotel Fort Young is among the … Open
A panel of seashells can be considered a somewhat more exotic souvenir. On the island, they also make bracelets, necklaces and a variety of accessories from shells, but nothing can be compared to a picture from the shells of marine inhabitants. Local residents are sure that the shell is a symbol of the house and the beginning of a new life. So it is better to present such things to young girls. The craftsmen here also make original candles, and souvenirs from the palm leaves, and a variety of statues. The needlewomen might like the local fabrics. Napkins, scarves, tablecloths and clothing are created, using batik techniques and look really impressive. Particularly colorful souvenirs can be purchased in the Caribbean, where Aborigines make wicker baskets and furniture, as well as ceramic products in exactly the same way as they had centuries ago.
