JWOF  tapped into the nostalgia of Jamaican “Gran Market” and the Holiday Arts & Craft Fairs in Jamaica by bringing the concept to South Florida to coincide with the traditional kick off of the Christmas shopping season in the United States at Thanksgiving.  Local artisans with a variety of unique items that cannot be found in stores along with a Farmer’s Market selling fresh produce were present at the Gran Market. The event also featured a Children’s Reading Corner, Storytelling and entertainment.
