Green-thumbed Brackers hold weekly farmer’s market

A small coalition of green-thumbed Cayman Brackers is offering up their backyard bounty at a weekly farmer’s market.

Organisers say the premise behind the market, held saturday mornings (weather permitting) in West End near Billy’s Supermarket, is to give gardeners a venue to sell what they can’t use themselves – no matter how small the quantity.

Lolita Bodden told Cayman 27 visitors love it too.

“Local stuff lasts longer, it’s fresher, it tastes better, and it’s nice not just for locals who are used to having that stuff in some quantities,” explained Ms. Bodden. “When visitors come by they’ll come and try new things, [and ask] ‘how do you eat that, how do you cook that,’ so it’s been really sort of cool to have that interaction on a tourism basis as well as the locals.”

The Backyard Farmer’s markets kicked off in February. Ms. Bodden told Cayman 27 it has rapidly became hub for social activity on the island.
