Street Food

butchering meat on the street roasting corn

Street food is very good on Barbuda. At school 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 cooked by Carol outside Canutes old shop on a Friday or Saturday lunchtime, or at Charm Charles on the main road. If you are cooking; local meat (mainly pork or beef) is sometimes 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 DO NOT BUY undersize or prohibited fish, conchs or lobster, and conchs or lobster 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.

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...
