The Shop is open from 12 noon to 8 pm every day.
“The Jamaica Pop Up Shop will allow guests to Feel the Vibe of our island and fall in love with the destination before booking their vacation,” said Donnie Dawson, Jamaica’s Interim Director of Tourism. “We hope that at this interactive experience, New Yorkers can get a taste of what Jamaica has to offer through it its food, music, style and beauty.”
Throughout the 4-day period, Jamaica will be offering giveaways every day including dinners at Miss Lily’s, the celebrated Jamaican restaurant located in downtown Manhattan; Jamaica-themed gift baskets, and the grand prize of a trip to Jamaica for two.
An interactive experience is planned each day: Grace Foods Chef Ambassador will offer lunch-time cooking demonstrations; Golden Krust patties will be available each afternoon along with Grace Coconut Water and Juices during the Jamaica Patty Hour; each evening a fashion show set to music from Irie Jam Radio and LargeUp’s Dave “DJ Gravy” Susser will help transport visitors to Jamaica.
