The Farmers Market

Have you ever wondered where can i go to get a authentic taste of Caymanian culture, cuisine, and crafts? Well a new venue has recently opened in Lower Valley that is sure to tickel your fancy. Simpy titled THE MARKET ,this venue for local farmers and craftmakers to display their wares opened just over a month ago and has been an instant success.

Local produce such as cassavas, breadfruits,yams, sweet potatoes, and many other delicious items are for sale here guaranteed fresh, as they are brought straight from the farm, to the market. Local art such as “Thatch” baskets and hats are on sale here as well. “Thatch” items are created from the branches of the “Silver Thatch Palm Tree”, which is indigenous to The Cayman Islands.
If you come to the market hungry don’t worry as there is plenty of local cuisine there to sample.Why not sample special local cuisines such as Turtle and Conch stew, Fish dinners, and everyone’s favorite, Rundown!
The Market is open Saturday’s from 7am onwards, so get there before the rush to get a unique taste of Cayman.

    Where is the “Lower Valley”? We will be in Grand Cayman in March 2008, staying in the Rum Point area. And this sounds like something our group would like to do.

    Thanks!

    Lower Valley is just on the East Side of Savannah, so about 15 minutes from central George Town, and 25 minutes from The Reef (make that about 35 minutes from Rum Point then).
