Oistens Sep 05, 2010
When in Barbados a trip to Oistens Market is a must. Oistens Market area is only about a 15 minute drive from the airport and is the place to be on Friday and Saturday nights. Its a market place where everyone in the area gathers (locals and tourists) It has clubs, restaurants, bars, and lots of small restaurants and bars.
The food is fresh and cheap, and the drinks (local beer, cocktails etc) are very affordable.
More importantly you really get to feel and experience Barbados. You won't find any major food franchises here, just authentic cusine and friendly people.
I strongly recommend sampling the many fish dishes (especially the grilled local specialities such as 'flying fish'
So if you do make it to Barbados, make sure Oistens is on your must do list
