Jersey’s Central Market is the vibrant heart of St Helier, a piece of Victoriana of unique quality and ambience, and well worth a visit.
There are 45 tenanted stalls surrounding the central fountain, and it's a much-loved institution which attracts many visitors and provides local shoppers with a friendly focus to the shopping centre.
Jersey’s public markets were first established in the late 1500s and are an important and integral part of the island's heritage. The Central Market moved from the Royal Square to its present site in 1803, and the current covered market was built in 1883.
It opens early each morning from Monday to Saturday. A bell is rung daily at 5.30pm (2pm on Thursdays) to warn shoppers that the gates are about to close.
Take time to wander the charming pedestrianised area tucked away around the Central Market and West's Centre area and you'll be rewarded with an array of irresistible boutiques, kooky homeware stores and pavement cafés.
Don't miss: The Jersey Pottery store for a unique collection of homeware and gifts.
