Crafts Market

The Crafts Market in Montego Bay is one of many on the island perfect for local souvenirs. The vendors do tend to be slightly aggressive in their effort to sell, but don't hesitate to decline. As elsewhere in Jamaica, prices may be significantly reduced by negotiation.


Shopping in Lucea itself revolves around the Saturday market, when vendors set up stalls all through the town's streets. Items on sale include a variety of fruit and vegetables, local arts, crafts, and souvenirs. For a wider selection of goods head to the neighbouring settlements of Negril and Montego Bay, where crafts markets side with a few shopping malls. Local specialty items include hand-made jewellery, wood carvings, original artwork, Blue Mountain Coffee, rum, Bob Marley memorabilia and cooking spices.
