Street Food

butchering meat on the street roasting corn

Street food is very good on Barbuda. At both schools just before break-time you can buy delicious home-made snacks like bread pudding, roti, meatballs, fried chicken and meat or vegetable patties. There may be fried fish and johnny cakes outside Canutes shop on a Friday or Saturday lunchtime and Wanda will be selling the best ribs, chicken and burgers at her new venue by the Duck Pond most days. Jerk Man has a central village stall selling various things including stews and Jamaican style jerk pork and chicken. You can buy roti from Marcia at her home at Roti Queen just off Madison Square. The Block Club and the churches do breakfast events and there are others who sell from various places in the village at different times. If you are cooking; local meat (mainly pork or beef) is often sold from a table in the village, is much cheaper and better quality than the imported frozen meat and sells out fast. If you are looking for Barbudan goat, lamb or deer meat you can often only buy from people you know. Fresh fish is often sold out of a cool box or barrow carried around the village but don't buy undersize or prohibited fish, or lobster and conchs out of season. There is a council vegetable 'market' but this is only open when there is produce to sell, which is not every day. Fancy's shop makes a point of selling locally produced vegetables and fruit when it's available.

Now, it's been too long.
Too long, too long in slavery.
Free the people and let them move in liberty
Now, it's been too long.
Too long, too long in slavery.
So the struggle continue.
But while the struggle continue, I'm going to tell you.
We rastaman will set the world free...
