A Trip To ‘Currie’

Curry 2

Friday, November 1, kicks off the Ministry of Agriculture and Fisheries’ Eat Jamaican Month, as well as The Gleaner’s Food Month. What better way to prepare for the month than with a look at Coronation Market this Wordless Wednesday? ‘Currie’ as it is popularly known, is the largest market in Jamaica, sprawling across approximately two acres of land on Pechon Street. On any given day, Currie is teeming with thousands of vendors from across the country and shoppers from Kingston and surrounding towns, who come to the market because of the reasonable prices.
