Ole Time Grand Market

Grand Market is a longstanding Christmas tradition in Jamaica mostly practiced today in rural parts of the island.

After Christmas morning service the community would be out in their numbers in the town square, or an open lot participating in a variety of games, and competitions for all ages, lots of gift items were on display for sale, and food and drink were in constant supply and demand, and a great time was had by all throughout the day.

Braata’s Version:
In keeping with its mission to retain and promote Caribbean cultural practices Braata will be replicating this family Christmas tradition every December in New York City complete with workshops, demonstrations, Jonkanoo and Mento bands, incorporating customs from other Caribbean territories, and culminating the day with a grand concert!
