Minister of Tourism the Hon. Edmund Bartlett says there are plans to open an Artisan Village at Hampden Wharf in Falmouth, Trelawny in a few weeks.

The themed facility will be designed to tell the unique story of Falmouth and offer Jamaicans and visitors a chance to experience local food, drink, art, craft and culture. It is expected to be the first of a series of similar facilities that will be located in resort areas across the island.

Funded by the Tourism Enhancement Fund, the project is training 175 practitioners in innovative craft development and effective leadership to equip them with the relevant skills to sustain their entrepreneurial business ventures.

The Artisan Village comes out of  a collaborative effort between the Port Authority of Jamaica and the Urban Development Corporation.
