Once the center of Falmouth, the Albert George Market was the hub of economic and social life for the region. Residents traded goods and gossip here for nearly a century until a new market was built on the other side of down in the 1980's. In 1989 the Albert George Market was refurbished and now serves as a makeshift flea and craft market.
Visitors will find many buildings dating back to the 1800's lining the street; complete with the old-town construction and feel of a small-town main street. As you walk down the road in the historic district, you will also likely be able to spot a well where the city's original water tower once stood. This water tower allowed Falmouth to implement running water before most major American cities.
Those wishing to visit Albert George Market may choose to book their trip in Falmouth, since visitors to this part of Jamaica will have the benefit of easy site access during their visit. With only a small number of hotels in the region surrounding this historical site, less tourist movement can be bargained on.
