In Bermuda, eating and drinking on public beaches and parks is a prized pastime. Locals pack a picnic to "sit off" with friends, a term used among islanders to denote socializing outdoors with food and drinks. Where to shop for supplies? If you’re near the City of Hamilton make a beeline for Miles Market, a specialty food shop that sells international cheeses, fine wines and prepared foods of all kinds (96 Pitts Bay Road, www.miles.bm; tel. 441/295-1234). On the east end, the choice is Harrington Hundreds, another high-end grocer in Smiths that sells fresh produce, sandwiches and baked goods galore (99 South Road, www.harringtonhundreds.bm; tel. 441/293-1635). There are also grocery stores islandwide, most prominently Lindo’s Family Foods (www.lindos.bm) with stores in Devonshire and Warwick parishes. And if you’d prefer that your wine, beer and select gourmet foods be brought to your doorstep, then place an order with Two Rock Wines, which offers free same day delivery on orders over $200; $10 fee for smaller orders (8 Harvey Road, Paget, www.tworockwines.com; tel. 441/232-2325).
