Caribbean Market is looking for new ways to invite the community to be more involved in the Market. These projects help reinvigorate the artistic offerings and bring new people into the community to experience all aspects of market life. We look forward to working with the Grow Community to support artist and makers to produce a variety of works and build up their small businesses and skills.
