Coronation market was a great walk, long but so much to see on the way. Early in the morning it is a very good time to visit when the venders are not setting up for the day. Freshly peeled sugar cane, June plum, so many more it's hard to remember all. The venders were very helpful and accommodating. The prices... More

If you're buying any quantity you can hire a cart and have its operator follow or guide. The place is huge. It is packed, especially on weekends. It... More

Markets are generally fun and the huge Coronation Market is a wonderful feast of sights, smells and sounds. So many different fruits and vegetables to see and buy - don't be afraid to ask the vendors (known as higglers) what they are, and to try them. The place has a great atmosphere and you get to hear real Jamaica talk.
