This small village on the A2, 13km north of Black River, is a tiny vortex of good eats: it’s renowned for women higglers (street vendors) who stand at the roadside selling delicious (spicy) pepper crayfish – pronounced ‘swimp’ in these parts – cooked at the roadside grills. The shrimp are caught in traps made in centuries-old West African tradition from split bamboo. Around J$500 will buy a spicy bagful. Middle Quarters' fame is also its link to Jamaica's most famous bamboo grove.
