I was in Jamaica for the first ever reunion of my father’s family and we decided to go to a few touristy places as well as the old neighborhood, church, school, cemetery, etc. While enjoying the attractions at Ocho Rios, I took time to visit the market and buy some souvenirs such as clothing, jewelry, pens and pencils, purses and tote bags. I wish they had a website so we could purchase their wares abroad.

We did a market called the Pine apple craft market, the taxi driver suggested it rather than the main street market.
Lots of small booths many with the same things, the owners of the booths where extremely friendly and polite we did enough shopping here we did not need to go to the main market.

Market has a lot of trinkets in it. Most stalls have the same stuff or very similar. Vendors are all over you asking you to look and offering deals. Can be a bit overwhelming but they are nice folks just trying to make a living.

Craft Market Ocho Rios. You can buy stunning art made from different types of wood; Large figures, wall decor, bowls, animals, masks, plants - all are incredibly well made and detail oriented. In many other countries these men making them would be well- known artists, no doubt about that. When I was there there was a huge cruise ship in the harbour yet not a single tourist there. Naturally when I entered the market the vendors would try to convince me to see their stuff. This is how they make a living so I get it, just be kind and move on. Don´t get annoyed and don´t feel guilty for not buying. But if you want authentic Jamaican souvenirs buy from one of the crafts men or other artists making bags, paintings etc. Also please keep in mind if you want a bargain, that living in Jamaica isn´t cheap and this is their livelihood. Enjoy Jamaica!:-)

Seems that every stall sells the same thing. Found a nice hand carved bamboo vase for $10. Too many cheap t-shirts to choose from, but do contribute to the local economy.

With the pandemic the tourists were restricted to just this part of the city. Not all the stalls and shops were open, but enough to get find what interested us. The area was clean and easy to move about. The vendors were friendly and offered to negotiate. Many took the time to chat about themselves and take an interest in our journey to Jamaica.

Remember that craft markets provide the livelihood for hundreds of families. Olde Market benefitted from a USAID grant with support from the US Peace Corps when it was completely built from the ground up in 1991. So next time you visit, tell the John the Peace Corps volunteer sent you!

It is a good place to buy souvenirs. It is not cehap, but not overpriced and cheaper than shops. You can haggle and make a good price. Sometimes, sellers are a bit pushy, but it is not a real problem. There are sold T-shirts, caps, handcraft works, other clothes and so on. You can pay in US-$ or local currency. There is also a supermarket nearby, where you can buy coffe and ron much cheaper than at souvenir shops.

I feel for the vendors trying to make a living, however the aggressive actions of them and locals on the street made me want to turn around and go back. I would not recommend any female be without a male. This is the only Caribbean country I have travelled that a was fearful for my safety. Will not go back to Jamaica.
