Re: provisioning st lucia-granada

All that fresh food you can get anywhere. The locals have to eat too
Cheese is available but the only decent cheese may be on a French island.

If you haven't actually been to St Lucia in the last few years.... at Rodney Bay there is a dinghy dock near the two brand new supermarkets. These two and the bees knees of provisioning and I would suggest you get all you can there. Grenada has supermarkets but....ummmmm wellllllllll......ummmmm they are great if you want to go on a diet.

By the way, the chicken in those islands is very affordable and very good quality, so when in a good provisioning island, or a French Island it may be worth while to stock up on different herbs and spices so you may extend the variety you can cook chicken.

Grenada grows many spices, so know whats there before you go. Vanilla beans are about $20 for 10 bean pods. That can be kinda fun! It's a bus trip to the spice market at Grenville on the other side of the island. Don't buy the spices at the tourist stalls...
Grenada is known for saffron, nutmeg, cinnamon, cloves and that sort of stuff. But be careful, they may spot you as a tourist and try to get you to buy torist price crap.
