A Taste of the Turks & Caicos

The Bambarra line of products is now available at the Gift Shop.

Bambarra-products-WEBThe name Bambarra has historical significance to the people of the Turks and Caicos Islands. In 1841 a Spanish slave ship carrying slaves bound for Cuba wrecked off the coast of East Caicos. By then slavery was illegal in the British territories and the 192 captives that survived were freed.  They were from a Mande tribe in West Africa consisting of persons that spoke the Bambarra language.  These are the ancestors of the many Turks and Caicos islanders.

At our Gift shop you would find Bambarra teas, jerk rubs, hot sauces, mango and papaya chutneys and also rum cakes.  Visit us today for a taste of the Turks and Caicos Islands.
