Provisioning for Bahamas

Depending where in Bahamas, fresh vegetables are generally available & reasonably priced.
The vegetable market on Potter''s Cay in Nassau sells a box of mixed fruit & veggies at very good prices. Luden''s Liquor will deliver your purchases to the BASRA (dinghy)docks. There is an excellent Winn-Dixie supermarket on S. Bay St.
Staniel cay (Exumas) has fresh fruit/veggies at "Pink Pearl" and "Blue Store", as well as by delivery to your boat (occasionally). Also see the "Isles General Store" for Ice Cream, harware etc . Berkie at "Isles General" also acts as a parts broker/importer etc.
"Exuma Markets" in Georgetown has everything.
Except Nassau, Georgetown etc, meat is generally frozen.
Liquor is cheap, while beer & cigarettes are expensive.
Big, light stuff is expensive (briing lots of toilet paper, femanine napkins, cookies & crackers etc.)
The Abacos are pretty civilized.
Good cruisin''
