We visited the market on a shopping trip to Ochos Rios with a driver from the villa we were staying in. He gently discouraged us from going there but we still went anyway. As far as handmade local craft items, we saw very little variety....More

Everything you could want is found here. The market is crowded and full of hustlers, but it makes the experience more "Jamaican". We loved the variety. Tip: Head to the back of the market for better deals. The vendors up front don't have to haggle...More

They are all very pushy but its easy enough to say no if you don't want it. Sometimes you have to say it twice but you don't have to buy. This place has the more unique items for a better price. Its a more authentic...More

We visited this shopping/flea market a bunch of times. They hassle you. A LOT. It's funny, a little annoying, but we expected it. It's Jamaica. All of the vendors sell just about the same thing. I think initially they offer you insane, high prices, but...More
