Okay our farmers markets are a tiny bit different here. Our local produce tends to be a little bit different than what you find on the mainland. So no apples, strawberries or peaches. We do however get as much papaya, mango and apple bananas as you could possibly want.
The flower selection is pretty amazing with every color ginger flower, bird of paradise, and heloconia. (I am inspired to plant all of these in my front garden that is currently a sad patch of weeds again!)
There are tons of produce vendors but most of them sell the same items, lots of sweet onions and local corn (which is outrageously priced anywhere you go, $1/ear!) Lots of greens and herbs, lots of stuff I am not even sure what it is…
I haven’t yet been able to shell out the big bucks for our local dairy products, maybe next time. The $7/lb butter is a little shocking (although I am sure its good) and the local butchers are super pricey too. We only have one dairy on island and one beef farm, so prices are always high.
But you will not go hungry shopping! There are some to die for food vendors.
There are farmers markets held all over the island, most on Saturday mornings. Try to hit one up and bring home some new goodies!
