There’s nothing like the real thing! The nutmeg you buy in shops has invariably lost its strong, fresh aroma. Grenada is famous for its spices, in particular nutmeg, which is exported around the world. The biggest nutmeg receiving and processing station in Grenada is in Gouyave, a bustling fishing village on the west coast; a great day out. The station offers daily tours where visitors can see the various stages of nutmeg processing. The smell is so intoxicating you won't want to leave! The town's name originates from the many guava trees growing in the area. You can also buy nutmeg shells by the sack; no good for travelers, but great for locals who spread them on their gardens to keep down the weeds.
Along the road is the Fish Market where you can buy all kinds of fresh tropical fish. There are several attractions in the area, Grand Etang Lake, Annandale Falls. Just surf the web for Grenada.
If you go on a Friday afternoon, you can stay on for ‘Fish Friday’ in the evening, a once weekly venue of colourful street stalls selling all kinds of food and drink - not to be missed.There are tables and benches, music and drummers, with a lively traditional atmosphere.More
