Willemstad’s Floating Market
Colorful wooden boats arrive from Venezuela each morning to set up stalls that sell tropical fruits like pineapples and bananas as well as vegetables, and fresh fish. They congregate along Sha Caprileskade, just around the bend from the waterfront where the Queen Emma Bridge connects with Willemstad’s Punda district. To stroll along the floating market, which opens in the early hours of the morning and runs until midday, is a veritable feast for the senses. Ask the vendors for their recommendations and you may discover a new favorite.
