We work with local suppliers to provide provisioning packages at the best possible prices with the freshest, highest quality produce available.
We carry a selection of house-keeping materials and drinks at our marina. For full provisioning offsite, the best choices are either the Sunrise Supermarket, close to the airport and around 10 minutes’ drive from our marina, Super J, also close to the airport, or C.K. Greaves in Kingstown, a 20-minute cab ride.
Provisioning in the Windward Islands can be quite an adventure and different to grocery shopping in Northern America and Europe. The larger Islands have colourful fruit and vegetable markets where all types of fresh produce are available. Market Day is Saturday and it’s usually best to arrive early. Prices in these markets are usually fixed, although sometimes it is possible to bargain, especially if you’re purchasing several items from the same vendor.
Meals are packaged with sailing in mind. Easy to prepare outside so as not to heat up the saloons. Restaurant gourmet meals made to be enjoyed on-board. Chef A.J. recommends using egg-bread when ordering other provisions as it fairs better at sea.
Barefoot will be providing to our guests a custom online provisioning application. Not only will you be able to create a meal plan for each day of your charter our system will automatically create the full provisioning list right down to the number of bananas your will need.
Simply enter your name, phone and email,number of people in your party and the dates of your charter using our custom date picker.
Calendar based Meal Planner
Select your meals for each day from our extensive list of meals designed with the local produce and items available in our area. Once your done you will have a calendar showing you all the meals you have selected for each day. Don’t want chicken and rice for dinner on Wednesday? No problem, delete the meal by clicking the ‘x’ and add another one from the list.
When your done the system will generate a complete meal plan and provisioning list with all of the ingredients needed to make your meals for the duration of your charter. The system will also email you your complete meal plan for every day of your charter.
When you arrive for your charter all of the provisions will be waiting for you on your boat!
Customize your Recipes!
Not only will you be able to see your meals for each day of your charter but if you click on a meal it will be displayed for you showing a photo of the meal complete with a detailed recipe. If you see something your allergic to you will be able to substitute it. For example, your recipe calls for milk but one of your crew is lactose intolerant, simply substitute it for almond milk or soy milk.
Our system will also display icons representing spiciness, health and its carbon footprint (CF). (low is good high is bad).
Foods used in your meal with plastic packaging will get a higher CF than those using no packaging
Foods that are local will get lower CF than foods that are imported.
