POTD: Caribbean Crafts Markets

A visit to a Caribbean crafts market like this Jamaican market can be a highlight of your family trip--or a time to pull your hair out. Be sure to have some preset spending limits for each member of the family before you head off for the market. Also, do a little research and find out the practices of the market before you go. Will bartering be expected or will prices be set? What are the best items to buy on that particular island? Is there a best time to shop? (Early mornings are often best for bargains as are days when there are no cruise ships in town.)
