"Graze the Grenada Spice Market" (from "USA Today")

The above title is from yesterday's "USA Today" publication. Here is an excerpt:

"The West Indies island of Grenada is often referred to as Spice Island, a name it earned for its wealth of spices, which were highly prized during the colonial era. Present-day Grenada is a leading producer of cinnamon, cloves, ginger, bay leaf, turmeric and nutmeg. The island is also getting props for its locally made chocolate.

There’s nothing like a Caribbean market for enjoying a heaping helping of local color. On Grenada, travelers are advised to head to the Spice Market in Market Square in downtown St. George's, the capital city of the island. The Spice Market is open every day — to get the maximum effect, try to visit on a Saturday morning, when the market is at its busiest. Chefs from local restaurants come early, usually around 6 a.m., to score the best produce. More laid back Grenadians wander into the market around 11 a.m. to buy a few things for home, socialize and have a light meal."

Be sure to enjoy the 39-item slideshow depicting, among other things, Grenada's people, beauty and products.
