The inaugural Denbigh food court has been hailed as a huge success with patrons eagerly sampling the array of tasty local cuisine which were available at the venue over the three-day show.
“We are very satisfied,” said Jamaica Agricultural Society (JAS) President, Norman Grant.
He told JIS News, that the more than 20 booths, which were set up at the show, were sold out days before the event and suggested that this might have been an early indication of how successful the initiative would have been.
Among the dishes available were jerk chicken, jerk pork, ackee and saltfish, roast yam and bammy.Senator Grant said that based on the success of the food court, it would be a regular feature at Denbigh, as the JAS continued to encourage Jamaicans to eat local foods in keeping with the theme: ‘Grow What You Eat and Eat What We Grow’.
The JAS President noted that some patrons had complained about the cost of some food items, but said that the scarcity of some products may have resulted in the high cost.
Denbigh 2005 was held in May Pen, Clarendon from July 30 to August 1.
