Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Very busy and easy to get lost. If you have time to browse and don’t mind a little adventure you may like it but I was looking for certain things and did not find it easy to navigate.

Great place to shop, the price is very affordable especially for the case of fish and the people is friendly too.

This is a real experience on a Saturday, which is when I believe it's busiest. It was just gigantic, and so packed! There were areas given over to various foods more or less in the centre -- not just a hall or two but acres! Then you get to the clothing, textiles, and other areas. There's even one area where people are having their feet, nails, hair, etc done and getting massages. Some areas get so full you have to weave your way through. It goes without saying that you need to be careful of your possessions (I noticed everyone, even the locals, were carrying backpacks in front of them), but you also need to beware of the heat re sunburn, heat-stroke and dehydration. You also need to watch where you're going as some areas are concreted but others are dirt and potholes, there are banana skins and sometimes other rotting things on the ground, and porters with trolleys are always in a rush to get by. You don't have to worry about traffic though as you'll be able to walk faster! The only thing that really distressed us was that we couldn't find anywhere at all to sit down. We'd expected to be able to sit and watch the life of the market over a beer and lunch but we literally didn't find anywhere, not even a perch. Plenty of places to buy water, but we needed seats too. In the end we hailed a taxi and the driver very slowly took us out of the area.

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 were much cheaper here too. Take a cab back, if you did like me and over shopped.

A must visit giant complex of stockyard type sheds housing every imaginable vendor. Fresh fruit and vegetables, cuts of meat, car parts, clothing, toys, electronics, prepared street foods, music, toiletries, games of chance and even building materials...it is all here in this astounding warren of people and produce. It is a combination farmer's market, swap meet, and food court full of engaging, friendly people remarkably unlike the annoying touts of tourist area straw markets. Escape the sanitized "all inclusive" resort experience...embrace the real Jamaica!

This huge and crowded market should be up near the top of things to do. This is where you'll meet the people, ask revealing questions, walk a lot and be quite hot. 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 might be intimidating and chaotic , but it shouldn't be. It's a social destination for locals and many will spend the day finding their favourite vendors.

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.

This is one of the best things to experience while in Kingston. Our guide MaryAngela was excellent at winding us through the vast market to sample exotic fruits, local food and other goods. From the tour we were able to gain insight as our guide pointed out the micro economy in place as vendors, farmers and retailers come from all over the island to stay for days to prepare to set up business on a Saturday. The market is open everyday, but it is at it's biggest and best on Saturday.
