Grenada: Spice Capital of the World
Okay. I"ve been back on Rascal for about a week. She is in Port St Louis Marina in Grenada. Linda will join me next week. Today, I took our dinghy over to St. Georges across the bay and went to the market. Saturday is a big day...May try to introduce this blog on Facebook....Hmmm. Will it work?
This was a mural on the wall of an open area in the market place. Sort of captures the atmosphere though there were more cars than buses.
This is just part of the fruit and vegetable market. Bananas, coconuts, avocado, etc.
There are lots of little kiosks with lots of people selling spices. All these spices are grown on Grenada; the whole market smelled wonderfully spicy.
This nice lady sold me some saffron and nutmeg. She explained how the saffron is prepared; one bag was coarse, another was medium, a third was a fine powder. $5EC each (5 Eastern Caribbean Dollars = $1.85US.)
