are several small supermarkets in Montserrat and many roadside vegetable
and fruit stands. Most of the food available is imported from the
United States, but some also arrives from Britain.
local meats -- beef, lamb, chicken, pork and goat -- are available.
Surprisingly, fish, shellfish and lobster are rarely available unless
bought frozen at a supermarket. Many of the island's fishermen bring
in catches of very small fish which we jokingly think of as suitable
dishes once included the "mountain chicken" which
you can see in the photograph to the right -- it is a large
photograph was taken on a hiking tour led by Ma Pai. These frogs
are now considered endangered and should no longer be eaten
in Montserrat. Sadly you'll find them on more than one menu.
other famous dish of the island is goat water stew, which is still
widely available and still delicious.

Our own home grown fresh herbs for seasoning, teas and good health
were available every week at Norman's Supermarket when we lived
in Montserrat. All of the herbs
were pesticide free and grown in soil where no herbicides or fungicides
(or any other ---cides) were used. We found a welcome market and
hope that some farmer has now taken up the slack.

Watts, local farmer pictured on the right, works land above the
now closed and for sale Vue Pointe Hotel. He enjoys the same beautiful
view of the ocean their guests once did as he raises vegetables,
pigs and sheep. Oriel also provides services to other local farmers
