1. Farmers Markets

The Hamlin Stephenson Market at The Cricket Grounds in George Town takes place Monday through Saturday while The Farmers & Artisans Market at Camana Bay runs on Wednesday afternoons. The markets host over 30 local farmers and vendors giving you a wide range of products from locally harvested vegetables and fruit to cooked meals and artisan crafts. Locally produced coconut oil, pickled pepper mango jam, body scrubs and artisan candles are just some of the items available.

2. Grocery Stores

If you’re renting a villa or a condo for your Cayman vacation, you’re probably planning to do a little cooking. If you can’t make it to one of our local farmers’ markets, you can stock up on groceries at one of our many supermarkets that offer a wide variety of food. Foster’s Supermarket, Kirk Market and Hurley’s all offer convenient locations across Grand Cayman. Convenient online ordering is also available.

3. Cayman Cabana

Every Thursday, Cayman Cabana offers an amazing family-style 4-course, farm-to-table harvest dinner featuring some of the best locally grown produce and freshly caught seafood. During the week, don’t miss their Fresh Catch menu. We recommend having the chef prepare your fish with their signature Scotch Bonnet cream sauce, with caramelised plantain, and traditional rice and beans.

Not only do they provide great food complemented by a scenic waterfront view, but they have produce from local farmers and freshly caught seafood.


5. Grape Tree Cafe

Located on the beach in historic Bodden Town, this is a favourite spot to stop by for delicious fresh ‘fry fish’ and fritters. Items like chicharron, roast snapper, fried wahoo, jerk chicken, conch fritters and more, make this place popular with locals and visitors alike.

6.  Vivine’s Kitchen

Worth the drive to the East End, you’ll experience home cooking of traditional Caymanian foods like oxtail, conch and callaloo. The food is cooked right in Miss Vivine’s home kitchen! Relax ocean side with a cool breeze and a swing in the hammock while she prepares a meal to remember.
