Some Food and Fashion on the Side

Set-up along the sidelines, vendors sell a wide-offering of Caribbean foods, such as rice and peas, jerk chicken, escovitch fish, oxtail, aloo pie, sugar cane and more. Clothing, artwork and other items from or inspired by the Caribbean and Africa can also be found from sidewalk sellers.
