The Central Market, situated to the Westward about three minutes walk from the Clock Tower, is a very substantial brick and granite structure covering a large area and extending from the Queen's Road to the the Praya. Its upper story is confined to the supply of meat, poultry and fruit, including game when in season; the basement being set apart for fish, vegetables and the use of wholesale dealers. The place is kept nice and clean and should be of interest to every visitor who may respect one of the most important of our sanitary and hygienic institutions.
