Gary Augustus, one of the organisers and proprietor of the Soul Food Grill & Café, said the market was originally planned as a community festival, the event had to be scaled down to meet Covid-19 regulations.

However the first event, held the day before the Cup Match holiday, was deemed a huge success for community businesses.
