Farmers Market
“This is a shopping market with local vendors from the island's countryside selling their goods which is primarily locally grown produce. It is not a tourist destination perse and it is located to nearby urban communities that don't have the nicest reputations. That being said walk with on JMD and no more than 5,000JMD which is equivalent to 40 USD. It is good little market for variety and those who like to haggle, it is dirt cheap and a good experience. Go in search of Gross Mitchell Bananas they are the best. ”
