Shopping in Montserrat

Because of the relocation from the volcanic areas, especially the capital Plymouth, shops have had to move and rebuild in the northern area all over again, but many have already moved into permanent premises.

There is not yet a new 'town centre', although one is planned. Hence, shops on the island tend to be scattered at intervals along the main road, especially in Brades. Do expect to make several stops when shopping. There are however a few groups of shops, such as the BBC complex and the Ryan’s Court on the Brades Main Road.

There’s a variety of attractive, locally made handicrafts, gifts and products to be found on Montserrat, as well as photos and postcards of the volcano. Crafts on sale include hand-crafted leather goods, hand woven items from locally grown sea island cotton, T-shirts, volcanic souvenirs made of ash and volcanic rocks, handmade dolls and greeting cards, local preserves such as guava jelly and hot pepper sauce, local music CDs, and books and videotapes on Montserrat.

Shopping hours are generally – Monday, Tues, Thursday and Friday, 8 am-5 pm; Wednesday and Saturday, 8 am-12 noon. Grocery shops usually stay open later and also open for a few hours on Sundays.
