Provisioning for Bahamas

We just returned from 4 months in the Bahamas (Abaco, Eleuthera and the Exumas). By and large, the fresh fruits and vegetables most readily available are citrus fruits, starchy vegetables, and some fresh vegetables like carrots. Depending on where you plan to cruise, it is best to find out from a local when the supply ship comes in (it''s usually the same day each week). That''s when you go shopping. Otherwise, fresh greens are not going to be part of your regular diet. And it is true that most meats are frozen, but usually easily available. You will find that you shop more often anyway, because foods do not hold up as well on a boat in a tropical climate than they do at home. Feel free to contact me if you have any other questions about the trip.
