A shopping mecca, this downtown street is lined with malls and flea markets. On Oranjestad’s main pier, across from one of the larger malls, you’ll find the site of Aruba’s first public market. Once a clearinghouse for local fruits, vegetables, and fish, the space now features open-air stalls hawking Aruban art, crafts, leather goods, and other souvenirs. Look out for hand-milled aloe soaps and creams as well as watercolors by local artists. Bargaining is expected, so don’t settle for the first price you hear.
Not Shopping in Aruba
We wanted to escape from the usual shopping euphoria of Aruba. It was Christmas Eve, and my son and I decided to explore. We walked a mile away from the shopping area and found this Oasis (The West Deck). We had a drink and spent a few hours admiring the view. You do not need anything else on any evening—especially on Christmas Eve.

Several flea markets line the boulevard, with open-air stalls selling Aruban art, crafts and leather goods alongside souvenirs and other keepsakes. The biggest is on the wharf in Oranjestad's harbor. Bargaining is expected.

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.
