Official Re-Opening of Red Rose Fish Market
Over 50 fish vendors have been relocated from the streets on Monday (December 6) as the Kingston and St. Andrew Municipal Corporation (KSAMC) partnered with the Ministry of Local Government and Rural Development and the Urban Development Corporation (UDC) to officially re-open the Red Rose Fish Market in Kingston.
The KSAMC has invested heavily in projects to improve markets across the municipality in keeping with our strategic objective of providing efficient services to residents and other stakeholders.
The work on the fish market include the construction of a framed structure, 50 vendor stall areas, 50 fish storage compartments, new pavement for parking and fencing.
His Worship the Mayor of Kingston, Senator Delroy Williams, CD said the market upgrade is one facet of the downtown Kingston and Port Royal Redevelopment Plan 2030 and will now allow the fish vendors to operate in a safe place.
Mayor Williams also stated that the completion of the Jubilee Market early next year will see an additional 60 haberdashery vendors removed from the streets in the vicinity of Orange Street, West Queens Street and other sections.
