Saint James Market

The OLDEST STRUCTURE in St James is now threatened with CLOSURE by the City Corporation of Port of Spain. The Mayor and by extension the Council has sent out signals that the Market has run its course. To those in the know the Market is not just a building for Vendors to "ply" their trade, it is the Centre of St James and as far as memory goes this is where everything happens. Culturally, Socially, Economically and Politically the Market has served as the place where all residents gathered on a daily basis but especially so on the weekends.
