Cayman Craft Market, George Town

3.7
For a one-of-a-kind shopping experience, the bustling Cayman Craft Market in downtown George Town is the place to be! Sample some of Cayman’s culture and heritage as you browse through locally made arts, crafts and produce.

Potter through woven thatch hats and bags, bona fide island jewellery, one-of-a-kind woodcarvings and paintings, handmade products from local materials such as conch and caymanite, and other jewellery crafted from seeds, beans, and polished coconuts! Local spices, jellies, jams, pickles, snacks and even hair braiding can be found here!

The Cayman Craft Market was developed by the Cayman Islands Government to provide an avenue for local artists to showcase their unique and indigenous products. Caymanian crafters who employ some of the oldest known skills in the Cayman Islands bring their wares to this little market by the sea.

It has become an integral part of the tourism product and is enjoyed by thousands of visitors each year!

Crafts that represent a wider range of Caribbean souvenir items are also offered.

The Craft Market is just a short walk from the cruise ship pier in George Town.

Now that's Island Living!

  • If you like to cook you need to go say hi to Miss Ivy and pick up some of her delicious spice rubs and jerk marinade to take a taste of the Caribbean home with you. If you like it spicy, grab her scotch bonnet pepper sauce as well. Not only will you get some delicious treats to take home, you will get to enjoy a warm and delightful conversation with Miss Ivy as well.
  • The items are made and sold by locals. It is handcrafted beautiful items made from local island materials. It can be cool shell items made diversely, spectacular jewelry, very reasonably priced family and children's souveniers. I buy souvenirs and chat with locals and enjoy year after year!
