    Default Avocado and Ginger, sweet potatoes?

    I was just wondering if anyone knows if I can purchase Avacado, Fresh Ginger root, sweet potatos at Van Den Tweel or any of the other supermarkets on the island.

    I've seen all of these items at VanDenTweel- but once you see them purchase them immediately as they won't be there next week!

    On lucky days, you will find 2 kinds of avocado - the larger, brighter green, smoother "local" variety and the smaller, darker Haas or "American" kind. Bigger stores like VDT, Warehouse and Bonaire Food Group do better at stocking Haas than local markets. They often arrive rock solid, 3-5 days from ripeness. For more ripe and ready local produce, recommend local markets, who offer variety beyond the big stores.
