Some of the questions we are asked most often are about shopping and provisioning. Here are some of them, plus the answers.
The Real Value IGA Supermarket at Spiceland Mall is open 7 days a week – 8am till 9pm Monday to Thursday, 8am till 10pm on Friday and Saturday and 9am till 7pm on Sunday. They are open most public holidays, but check first on their Facebook Page. Weekly container deliveries usually arrive just before the weekend, so Friday to Monday will find the best selection of imported goods.
Foodland on Kirani James Boulevard opposite Port Louis Marina is open 7.30am till 8pm Monday to Thursday and 7.30am to 10pm Friday and Saturday (closed Sunday).
Foodfair opposite the Radisson Hotel on Grand Anse Road is open 8am till 7pm Monday to Thursday and 8am to 10pm Friday and Saturday (closed Sunday).
There is a farmers market on Wednesday mornings in the Youth Centre car park – on the road behind Spiceland Mall. They have a Facebook Page.
Another option is The Tower Estate in St Paul’s who grow their own organic produce. You can collect from The Tower Estate, and they can deliver – contact 473 440 3243 or 473 405 8807. They also offer tours of the Estate House and Gardens and afternoon teas (served Fridays). Book via their Facebook Page.
The best gluten free selection is at Real Value IGA. They have ‘Bobs Red Mill’ products, plus other brands.
In addition to the chandleries and supermarkets, two places with good ranges of cleaning products are Gittens Pharmacy (on ‘Wall Street’ by the roundabout just before Spiceland Mall) and Ace Hardware on Maurice Bishop Highway.
