A record number of stalls are on display at this year’s Bridgetown Market.
There are a total of 326 stalls, 96 in the Bajan Craft Village and 230 on Spring Garden Highway.
“This is unprecedented. Never has this happened before in terms of those numbers,” Minister of Culture Stephen Lashley
said last evening at the Celebration of Emancipation Day and the Official Opening of Bridgetown Market held at the Bajan Craft Village.
The most visible change this year, Lashley noted, is the installation of double decker stalls to cope with the overwhelming demand for more space.
Lashley implored the thousands traversing the highway to support the entrepreneurs, even as he and other dignitaries laid wreaths in tribute of Barbados’ nation heroes.
