Morant Bay Market Jamaica

 

Morant Bay Market is as authentic a Jamaican market as it gets. Under its zinc roof is housed stall after stall of vegetables, household goods, school supplies. There is a section for the meat market where you can find various feet used enthusiastically in traditional dishes. There are spice blends sold in little plastic bags that are used just as enthusiastically.

Morant Bay Jamaica

Morant Bay is a vibrant, bustling, truly Jamaican city. It is here that you can leave the hassles and haggling of the tourist areas behind and get a taste of a warm welcoming Jamaican town.

Morant Bay is the capital of St. Thomas parish. In front of the courthouse stands a statue of Paul Bogle, national hero, where he died in the unsuccessful Morant Bay Rebellion in 1865.
