Brighton Farmers Market

Every Saturday morning, the Piles open up the grounds of their Brighton Plantation to a  whole host of farmer’s market vendors, allowing locals sell produce, ready-to-eat food (including the best spring rolls), handmade pottery, jewelry, & art. From 6am when the gates open, the area is full of American, Canadian, British, & Australian ex-pats sharing stories from back home. The plantation is in a beautiful, green area of Barbados that looks more like Kentucky than a tropical island. Getting up early to head to the Brighton Plantation, & having one of their real skim lattes, was always a highlight of our trips to Barbados.
