Hundreds turned out to patronise the final edition of this year’s now popular night markets, the Agri-Christmas Night Market held at the Basseterre Public Market on Thursday December 22, and an elated Federal Minister, the Hon Samal Duggins, has said that its overwhelming success points out to the successful future this country is headed.

“Tonight we see a wonderful display of what our people can do in agriculture, but not just agriculture – in terms of craft, and the development of agro-processing, and we are getting a glimpse tonight of what the future will look like for agriculture and small business and processing in our country,” said the Hon Duggins who is the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries, Marine Resources and Cooperatives; Small Business and Entrepreneurship; Sports and the Creative Economy.

Over 80 small scale business people in agriculture, agro-processors, and a wide range of small business entrepreneurs from both St. Kitts and Nevis had set up at the Basseterre Public, where some large operators occupied as many as three market stands depending on the amount of goods on display, and were heavily patronised by locals who are now showing an appetite for products that are locally made, especially coming at Christmas time.
