Need a potted plant, art and craft items, the latest in fashion, furniture, jewellery or any other collectibles? Market at the Lawn was the perfect place to snatch up one-of-a-kind items.
Held on the beautiful lawns of Devon House, Market at the Lawn is a seasonal open-air market put on by Kaili McDonnough Scott, where vendors from all over Jamaica come to sell their wares.
The event is held on the last Sunday of the month (in season) and on additional Sundays in December.
"Market at the Lawn is a really nice flea market that is really aimed at encouraging people to buy locally made items, and this year, we have vendors from as far as Montego Bay and St Elizabeth," Scott told Today.
"This is the first one as we go into this year's Christmas season, and it's a success every year as we have a lot of repeat vendors," she added.
Artist Peter Peart, who specialises in sculptures and ceramics, says he has been a part of the event for the past two years. "It has been such a success for me in the past two years that I have even invited my friend, another artist, to come to this year's event so he can get the exposure," he said.
Alice Manchetzz, from Linstead Market Jamaica, told Today that they offer their products at a lower price at the market and the feedback has been great for them.
The event is free, so whether you are a window shopper or not, you are sure to find something to peak your interest.
If you missed it this time around, don't worry; Market at the Lawn returns on December 8, 15 and 22, just in time for Christmas.
