While in the islands, it is important to sample the local foods. Whatever fresh fruits and juices are in season, you are likely to find them offered by local farm stands or in the markets. Do not hesitate to sample them. The most popular local dishes are "fungie", which is a cornmeal dish, pepper pot, seasoned rice dishes, and sweets such as sugarcake and tamarind stew. Pop-up stands appear during the weekends and offer local specialties such as barbecue, chicken and rice, and more.
