For the past 11 years, Market at The Lawn has been the go-to event for Christmas holiday shopping.

Described as an open-air flea market, the event provides local artisans and entrepreneurs who cannot allow a storefront to showcase their products to generate income over the season while encouraging persons to shop local.

This year, the event that started in the front yard of a property on West Kings House Road will celebrate 11 years. According to project manager Annette McDonnough, this would not have been possible without the constant support of individuals who, although they have access to online outlets, still see the value in shopping locally".

"We have so many talented artisans who make such incredible products. Market at The Lawn provides these said individuals with an opportunity to get their products in the hands of everyday Jamaicans and for exposure." shared McDonnough.

Director of the Tourism Linkages Network Carolyn Riley McDonald shared that this event is not a new concept. The TLN hosts Christmas in July yearly, which allows local artisans to showcase their work so that shopping can take place in December.

"We are again excited and looking forward to supporting a platform that not only supports but promotes brand Jamaica and will have several of our Christmas in July artisans and entrepreneurs displaying there."
