Our Barbados Markets Guide to Buying Food

Our Barbados markets food guide is to help you make full use of the excellent cooking facilities provided at both the Penthouse and Lookout apartments.

We have put together contacts that we hope will help you find the ideal solution to days when you don't want to dine out.

Within a few minutes walk of the apartment, by road or beach, is our nearest local supermarket - Jordan's, here you will find most basic food items and drinks along with babyfood and nappies etc. Jordan's is open 8am to 8pm Monday to Saturday, closed on Sundays and Bank Holidays. A little bit further down the road is the Orange Street Cafe which sells delicatessen items, and opposite here you will find a bakery. Fresh fruit and vegetables can be bought from the many street vendors.

A short drive south down the coast road is the small town of Holetown, here the supermarket at Sunset Crest has a wider range of food and more choice of meat products. Some Waitrose items are now available but quite expensive. There are several good delicatesens at the Lime Grove shopping centre in Holetown. 'Wine World' will deliver to the apartment.

The largest and most comprehensive supermarket is Super Centre at Warrens, about a 20 minute drive towards the centre of the island on highway 2. This is the biggest Super Centre supermarket on the island with an excellent selection of cheeses and fresh meat.

Supermarket - Warrens SuperCentre

Super Centre Ltd - is the largest supermarket operator on the island with five large, well stocked outlets. All feature a good range of local and imported goods, a takeaway counter selling both hot and cold items and a pharmacy: Super Centre at Sunset Crest in Holetown (most frequented by visitors), Warrens in St Michael and Southern Plaza in Oistins. The other two on the South Coast are JB's Supermarket in Sargeant's Village and Big B Supermarket at Peronne Plaza in Worthing. Opening hours except during public holidays are generally 8am until 8pm Mon-Fri, 8am-9pm Sat and 9am-2pm Sun, except at Warrens which opens to 10pm Mon-Sat and to 7pm Sun. You can also shop online.

Gourmet Food Shopping

Just because you are on a self catering holiday doesn't mean you have to cook! - Some of the following Delicatessens will deliver prepared gourmet meals and some will also cook and serve for you and your guests should you wish to host a party.

 

We can also recommend a cook on request, who will come into the apartment to prepare, cook and serve a meal for you at your convenience at an additional cost.

Food Markets

Brighton Farmers Market - Brighton Plantation, St George - For farm fresh produce and more besides, try the Saturday morning market in the St George valley. Run by owners Michael and Alison Pile on their 17th Century plantation, it has become an extremely popular social outing for families. A children's play area has been added, along with a large number of picnic tables on the lawns and a cafe area serving freshly brewed coffee. Stalls are normally up and ready to go by 6am and offer a wide range of homemade produce from bread and cakes to Thai spring rolls, pickles and chutneys, meat pies, sweets and jams, plus local artwork, jewellery and handicrafts.

Cheapside Market - Temple Yard - Bridgetown's main market for fresh fruit and vegetables.

Redland Farm Shop - St Joseph - Located opposite Andrews Sugar Factory en route to the East Coast. Estate farm shop run by Charles and Linda Herbert, selling local produce and homemade cakes, pies, jams, jellies and chutneys. Open Monday to Friday from 7am-4pm and Saturday until 1pm.

Fish markets - Are at their busiest late in the afternoon and early evening when the boats have just returned. The main fish terminals are located in Bridgetown and Oistins (known for its food stalls and Friday night Oistins fish fry) but you will find smaller markets and fish stalls on the West Coast. The fishing villages of Half Moon Fort in St Lucy and Shermans in St Peter have small stalls set up at the side of the road, where they also do a fish fry on Friday nights. Speightstown has a purpose built fish market, as does Weston in St James and there is a smaller one in Paynes Bay.

Tip - unless you are an expert in the art of preparing flying fish (and few are), do save yourself the time and effort by buying the packs of deboned fish.

 

Both apartments have an excellent BBQ area, and fish can be purchased from the fishermen in our bay, you will see them coming in every day, they are happy to clean the fish for you if you wish.

The spa pool as pictured is available at The Penthouse apartment, a sun deck and seating area is located at The Lookout apartment.
