Fort Montego Craft Market

Another one of MoBay's craft markets can be found at the Old Fort. Items sold here can be hit and miss, creative originals mixing in with lower quality imports from elsewhere. Haggling is well-expected – if you happen to lay eyes on a particular piece, do not agree to a deal until the price it brought down by at least a third.


Duty free shopping is one of Montego Bay's primary attractions; deals can be had all across town, from boutiques on upscale resort grounds to shopping complexes in town, such as the reasonably priced City Centre Building (do check for hidden taxes prior to making a purchase). Jamaican art and crafts are sold throughout, and vary in quality greatly. At markets, haggling is a must.
