Chef Darian’s 4th Annual Jamaican Market

Chef Darian Bryan, better known as Chef Darian, is preparing to bring back his Jamaican Market on Saturday July 20, from 4 PM to 8 PM in Larkin Square. The festival, which coincides with his birthday, has quickly become a signature event in Buffalo.

Since first relocating to Buffalo, Chef Darian has embarked upon a whirlwind culinary adventure with The Plating Society, The Jerk Hut, Bratts Hill, and numerous other Larkinville ventures. His culinary fame has spread throughout the city over the years, as he continues to inspire those around him with his outgoing personality, his unique sense of style, his love of cooking Jamaican-inspired food, and his non-stop go-go-go attitude. If there was a “face of Larkinville,” it would have to be that of Chef Darian.

One of Chef Darian’s claims to fame is his annual Jamaican Market, which is now in its fourth year. The free event features music, vendors, a culture tent, crafts, and, of course, some of the best Jamaican food found outside of Kingston.

The director of the festival is Chef Darian’s sister, Sherece Lewis, who relocated to Buffalo to help out her brother with his mission to bring stellar Jamaican food and heightened island culture to this city. Visitors to the free event can expect to find everything from ice cold Jamaican rum punch to a variety of Jamaican dishes (such as brown stew chicken, rasta pasta, coconut curry lentils, and escovitch style snapper).

Be sure to save the date, and bring your friends and family to this truly special, one of a kind Buffalo-meets-Jamaica festival that signifies the onward-and-upward unified spirit of this great city.
