The weekly tradition of the Friday night journey from Portland to Coronation Market in Kingston was a decades-long practice and one usually anticipated by long-time higgler, Novelette Fuller-Francis.
But on December 19, 2008, the then 43-year-old Fuller-Francis was apprehensive about making the trip. A feeling she said stemmed from a premonition of death she had days earlier.
As fate would have it, Fuller-Francis would be involved in one of the deadliest road accidents in modern Jamaica, as the market truck transporting her and 20 others plunged into a ravine at Dam Bridge in the Rio Grande Valley in Portland.
