We recently went to Falmouth on an NCL cruise and I fell in love with Jamaica here. Where some see unfamiliar and potential hazard, I see a quaint, historical English colonial grid Caribbean community. You don't travel to a different region to see another USA; you go to see something different. If you are in port, take time to walk beyond the sanitized, Disneyfied port and get into the real Falmouth. Yes you will have to walk one block from the port terminal to the block with the market and square where you will be aggressively approached by many people wanting to guide you or sell you marijuana. However, after politely declining and walking that block, the town opens to a great Caribbean colonial community and one of the first things you see is a palm lined pedestrian street with this market. I visited once by myself and once with my wife. As the earlier, reviewer says this is really a market place for locals. I simply breezed through. However, I did stop to take some pictures because the architectural prominence is significant and the commercial center on the square. There is no doubt the recent, enclosed and reproduction market has taken some of the commercial luster from this site. Still it has both the geographic and design of the town and it is great for pictures. Like so many Caribbean ports, it is that open air market that once defined these colonial communities and it is great to see Falmouth has not destroyed the history that made it great. Take the time to visit.

The building is historic being built in 1894 and is the most prominent structure on Water Square. It is located on the Southeast side of the square and a clock tower stands out and keeps with the Georgian character of the Caribbean. Today it is an open air craft and flea market. One place to eat is also located there. The name comes from Queen Victoria's two sons...Albert and George. There is not much here at all and seemed to dark and hot. There was a hub of activity around the area with a police presence so we felt fairly safe.
