One of the most significant highlights of my trip to Grenada was spending time roaming around the open market - a place where hundreds of vendors sell just about everything - water coconuts, bananas, avocados, mangoes, exotic fruits such as mamey, jagua, guanabana, plantain, breadfruit, and of course, so many varieties of nuts and spices. The aroma is all pervasive as you walk around this market. Vendors also sell clothing, knicknacks, baskets, and countless other items.
Cooked food is also served cheaply. It's a great place to have a delicious meal. One day I had a jummy sopa de pescado(fish soup), and a asopao de lambi, which is a soupy rice with conch meat. See the photo of the women preparing my meal.
The above is what you can purchase. The best meal, the one that really satisfies, that goes to your heart and soul, is being nourished by just being there, interacting with these wonderful, happy Grenadians. To witness a culture, a way of creating and maintaining community, of friendships, can leave us feeling somewhat poorer, regardless of our American wealth.
