Stabroek Market, located on Water Street and bearing the name of the oldest ward in Georgetown, was officially opened on November 1, 1881 by Governor Cornelius H. Kortwright. Built partly on land and water, this steel structure was designed by an American engineer, Mr. Nathaniel McKay. This landmark  serves as one of the main hubs for economic activities in the capital city.
