Hi there! Most of you may know of this place already, but I’m reminding you of it – Cheapside Market; found in the depths of Bridgetown on Cheapside Road just before the General Post office if you’re commuting from inside town.
I am a strong and avid believer and promoter of the prosperity of people and we can’t have that unless you start at the foundation; the basic need for human survival – Food. That being said, I’m just promoting a place where you can go and purchase good, wholesome, honest grown ground food/ ital. Here you can find varieties of all kinds of ground foods:- herbs, spices, starches, fruits etc. Go and take a look, you’ll be surprised at the quality of food you can find here instead of supporting these rich, corporate-owned supermarkets which prefer to supply us the people with imported goods that aren’t necessarily as rich in nutrients BUT the presentation is usually portrayed to be better.
Below, I’m publicly announcing my endorsement of a place where you can eat some of the best ital food in Bridgetown or possibly Barbados: Roots Reggae Vegetarian Cafe. If you’re looking for a fancy place then look elsewhere. Humble people living and providing humbly made foods is what you find here.
You get a medium sized container with a mixture or your choice of all their cooked ital provisions for $10 or a large container for $13 (prices obviously subject to changing).
As a person who is rather picky with what they consume, trust that when I buy a large crate even though it could serve me twice or three times throughout the day; when times become drastic, I may find myself consuming the entire crate over a short period of time.
So go and check out Roots Reggae Vegetarian Cafe if you’re in town or looking for great tasting ital food and enjoy!
