LG Smith Boulevard
This downtown street is lined with shopping malls and flea markets. Across from one of the larger malls on the main pier of Oranjestad is the site of the island’s first public market. Originally it was the clearing house for local fruits, vegetables and fish markets. Today, visitors hunt for treasures among the numerous open-air stalls. Aruban art, crafts, and leather goods are sold alongside souvenirs and other keepsakes. Look for hand-milled soaps and creams crafted from aloe, a major island crop, as well as artists selling watercolors inspired by Aruba. Bargaining is expected.
