Kingston Travel Guide

Kingston Shopping

With everything from colourful beachwear and tropical shirts to locally-made crafts and jewellery, Kingston has it all and shopaholics won''t be disappointed. The New Kingston Shopping Centre off Dominica Drive is the place to go for high quality and a wide range of products, while the Island Life Mall on St. Lucia Avenue offers a variety of shops, boutiques and even the Chelsea Art Gallery. Sovereign Centre is Jamaica''s largest shopping centre and boasts a variety of western stores and boutiques, as well as a food court and two cinemas. Tuff Gong in Marcus Garvey Drive is the place to go for anything reggae, they even have a recording studio used by Ziggy Marley. Jubilee Market on Orange Street is great for souvenir shopping as just about everything is sold here, from Bob Marley mementos and local arts and crafts to fresh fruit and the usual tourist miscellany. Keep a firm grip on your purse as it''s a haven for pickpockets. Kingston Crafts Market, on Harbour Street, is also a good place for souvenir shopping - look out for wooden crockery, pepper pots made from mahoe wood, masks, straw hats and baskets. There is a Farmer''s Market at Market Square every Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday throughout the year, where you can find local arts and crafts along with fresh produce. Or those happy to take it slow can head down Constant Spring Road and browse through the shopping plazas along the sides of the road.
