In 1799, the English traveler Henry Bolingbroke described Stabroek Market as such: “There is a market place where the XXXXXX assemble to sell their truck such as fruits, vegetables, fowls and eggs and where hucksters expose for sale articles of European manufacture in addition to salt beef, pork, fish, cheese, pipes, tobacco and other articles.”…as true today as it was over 220 years ago. Tony Dunnell does complete justice in his article describing this place, and take his warnings seriously!..also the back end of the market is now collapsing so mind your head!..
