TASTE OF VANUATU
Browse the local markets for an abundance of fresh produce
Vanuatu is a South Pacific oasis with regards to what’s available to eat and drink. The Ladies Market here is said to be the best in the Pacific. For those whose paradise comes with a big helping of luscious tropical fruit and vegetables, you’ll love the bananas, paw paw, aubergine, cucumber, beans, limes, kumala, yams, taro, ginger, nuts, bok choy, cabbage, green capsicum, watercress, lettuce and coconuts which are available all year round, not to mention the fresh basil, mint, coriander and parsley.
Seasonally you’ll find mangoes, pineapples, tomatoes, raspberries, oranges, pomegranate, and pumpkin: all organic, fresh, and sold by the individual families that grow them. Vanuatu has top quality beef; some of which is exported to Japan for sale as high-grade Wagyu. While cruising the islands, you’re bound to catch a yellow fin tuna, wahoo, mahi mahi or marlin. Ask the locals where to find lobster, fresh water prawns, or even a pig. Fresh, tropical food heaven.
