Photo Story | The Central Market in St Helier, Jersey

Whenever we travel to a new city or town, we make it a point to visit the local markets. While we don't go with a plan to buy something particular, we usually come away with one thing or the other. Local markets, I feel, give you a really good sense of the place you are visiting. These markets are often frequented by the locals and offer a more authentic way to experience the place. On our recent visit to Jersey, we allocated a few hours to visit the Central Market in St Helier.

The Central Market in St Helier, Jersey



The Central Market opened first in 1882 and even today is popular with locals and tourists alike. The market features Victorian architecture (including impressive cast iron structures and an ornamental fountain) and is worth a visit just to appreciate the building. You will find everything here: local produce (Jersey Potatoes, Jersey Strawberry, Black Butter etc.), arts and crafts, jewellery, fruits and vegetables, flowers, book stall, clothing, antiques, gifts and toys, food stalls and cafes, luggage shop and even a post office! The market is lively, bustling and packed with a genial atmosphere. In addition to shopping, the Central Market is a wonderful place for photography and people watching.

The Central Market is located on the corner of Beresford Street and Halkett Place in the heart of St Helier. It is open Monday to Saturday, from 7.30am-5.30pm except for Thursdays when it closes a little early at 2.00pm.
