Vendor at Market day with a Difference

Dominica is blessed with an abundance of foods that everyone will enjoy. Thanks to its rich fertile soil and temperate climate, many types of produce grow very easily here – for example:Citrus fruits, coconuts, bananas, coffee, cocoa, spices and many others. All thanks to the local farmers and markets vendors.

That’s why, to highlights the farmers and vendors contributions to the national development, “Market Day with a Difference” is observed on the last Saturday in October at the Roseau Market and markets around the island.

This years Market Day with a Difference was filled with excitement and beautiful colours. Many of the farmers/vendors came out dressed in their National “Creole” Wear, while showcasing the variety of produce (Organic or Non-Organic) Dominica has to offer.

Here are some scenes taken from Market Day with a Difference 2009 at the Roseau Market…Enjoy!

crowd at Creole in the park 2009

Thousand of music lovers packed the Botanical Gardens Thursday for the forth and final day of the 2009 LIME Creole in the Park.

It’s been an amazing four days of Creole Food, Art & Craft, Creole Music and Culture, there were a few challenges this year including the weather.

The final day kicked-off with performances by Genesis Steel Pan, Karifuna Cultural Group, Nature Boys Band, and Dominican reggae artist Harry Mo.

Following Harry Mo was DJ Midian and then the long anticipated performance by the TripleKay International, who didn’t disappoint their huge fanbase who came out to support. Next on stage was Ziggy Rankin alongside Tempo.

The final performance came from Internationally acclaimed Jamaican reggae artist Cecile, who brought down the curtains on LIME Creole in the Park 2009 with a phenomenal performance.

As I concluded our coverage of Creole in the Park 2009, I think it’s fair to say that everyone who came out enjoyed myself and had a good time sharing great experiences.

To all the Dominicans in the diaspora and foreigners, who were unable to be here to share the fun and excitement – I hope our coverage of Creole in the Park 2009 helped in anyway. With that said, I encourage you to continue visiting Dominica-Weekly.com for more coverage of Dominica’s 31st Independence Celebrations.

The crowds continued to pour into the Botanical Gardens on day three of LIME Creole in the Park as local reggae band Caribbean Vibes, Midnight Groovers, Claudette “CP” Peter and Taxik Band out off Antigua were set to the stage.

Day three started off with performances by the Cool Steel, Pointe Michel Cultural Group, Kros Vybes, and the Waitukubuli Dance Company.

Following the Waitukubuli Dance Company was Caribbean Vibes – one of Dominica’s more popular reggae bands. Their assorted brand of somewhat conscious roots-reggae music, but with hint of R&B dominated the stage and whatever else was going on around the park at the time.
