End of the road for vending on GT street

Food vendors that set up shop on Cardinal Avenue did so on Thursday 31 March for the very last time. The street sellers were not to everyone’s taste and after complaints were made, they’ve been told to move on.

John Jefferson Jr. was the man behind food market and he feels George Town is worse off.  He says he’s heard stories to back him up from locals.

“It’s needed when a cruise ship passenger asks me where I can find local food, I got to put them in a taxi and send them somewhere, but if its right here in other words, they have choices,” said John Jefferson Jr.

But it wasn’t only about giving tourists a taste of Cayman, Mr. Jefferson said he was giving people the opportunity to make a living.
