In honor of the West Indies day parade, we'll be bringing strictly island flavors for all the Caribbean people! (or any and all island dwelling, or island loving people) The West Indies = the islands in the Caribbean. The name derives from Columbus, who thought he was on the west side of India when he arrived. The history of the region is fascinating and tumultuous, heavily shaped by colonialism and the slave trade, but that's a whole other topic for another time, we're here to talk about fruit! Caroline is from Hong Kong and I'm half Puerto Rican (a part of the West Indies of course). Both are tropical islands that love their fruit, so tropical flavors are especially fun for us. Please come out and taste!
The flavors at the Brooklyn Flea this Saturday will be-
Ginger and Lime
