Montego Bay, Jamaica (McKoy’s News) – Montego Bay Craft Market: The Tourism Enhancement Fund (TEF) recently signed off on a $15.2 million grant towards the investment of the Harbor Street Craft Market in downtown Montego Bay.
Our news team caught up with Mikoyan Robinson, President of the Harbor Street Craft Market and he told our news team that over the past years, the craft market which is the largest in the parish has been suffering from lack of marketing and poor infrastructure.
Robinson further stated that after assessing the grave problem he made a proposal to TEF and they answered his calling.
Earlier this week, the Tourist Enhancement Fund signed off on a $15.2 million grant which will now be used to upgrade the craft market. Robinson stated that this money will be used to properly market the craft market within the tourism sector, both nationally and internationally.
Also, he will now be upgrading the infrastructure in and around the Craft Market at Harbor Street and this is aimed at bringing in more visitors both from the Cruise and Transit passage.
