How It Works
Yaad Market is an Online Caribbean Marketplace. We’ve created the website to help bring together buyers and sellers of Caribbean agricultural products, services and finished goods.
We allow people to post ads (both for selling and if you’re looking to buy something) showcasing the item(s) they have available. Categories include Produce, Herbs & Spices, Meats & Seafood, Dairy & Eggs, Fruits, Processed Goods, Services, and Other.
The site is 100% free to use. Buying and selling is done directly between the buyer and seller at their agreed price(s). All payments would be made directly to the seller separate from the site. We are only here to help facilitate the initial contact.
Currently we accept listings from Anguilla, Antigua & Barbuda, Bahamas, Barbados, Bermuda, Belize, British Virgin Island, Canada, Cayman Islands, Columbia, Costa Rica, Cuba, Curacao, Dominica, Dominican Republic, England, Grenada, Guyana, Haiti, Jamaica, Montserrat, Peru, Puerto Rico, St. Kitts & Nevis, St. Lucia, St. Vincent & The Grenadines, Suriname, Trinidad and Tobago, United States of America.
If you have something to post, please sign up for a free account and create your listings.
