Market Square



Market Square, St. Thomas, USVIMarket Square, St. Thomas, USVI

Originally, back in the 18th century, Market Square was home to one of the busiest slave markets in the West Indies.

Officially called Rothschild Francis Square, Market Square eventually became a popular place for people from all over the island to come to sell and purchase fresh fruit, fish, sauces, and vegetables. Its main landmark, the imposing cast iron bungalow, was built in the early 20th century and is where vendors set up. Traditionally, the busiest market day is Saturday; vendors arrive hours before dawn. Tourists who visit Market Square on Saturday mornings will be reminded of other farmers markets found throughout the world. The square can be accessed from Main Street.
