Hi all, we have a charter coming up May 3rd. Have only provisioned once before about 10 years ago. Can't remember when before the charter we put in our order; used bobby's don't remember which location and they were about an hour late . Was wondering how far in advance we should put in our order and with whom? looking for the establishment that has the easiest online ordering; or do they still only do faxing or emailing? I only know of riteway pasea and bobbys in roadtown. We will not need anything special as we are probably going to eat most dinners out, but will want breakfast items, deli stuff, snacks, water, beer, condiments, dry good stuff like that. We will be chartering from the moorings. Thank you in advance.

We provision through Riteway (basics), French Deli (the croissants, breads, cheeses and wine are amazing), Steakation (fantastic meats, poultry, seafood, hand made sausages) and Caribbean Cellars for booze. They all have on line systems and deliver to the boat. We also order some premade meals and sides as well as our first night meal from Naturally Tasty. They are wonderful to work with and excellent food.

We're chartering with TMM next month and they advised ordering provisions 2 weeks before your charter. We just did our ordering online with Riteway. It's a pretty simple format. They charge for delivery - 10% of order total.

Just back and our 1st time provisioning online. As easy at it seems there’s a lot to be said for the crew shopping while the briefing is going on. We ordered through Riteway. They substituted a lot of things. Some were Ok, some were not acceptable so we had to shop in person - we planned on picking up fresh produce and breads anyway but found we had to pick out our peanut butter, jams and juices to get what we wanted.
Next time, I would order big items like water, soft drinks. beer, rum etc and then pick up whatever else you need - even the juices were substituted with high-fructose crap. Riteway was great though, we added what we shopped for in person to our pre-ordered delivery. We had hoped to have some snacks ready for our later arriving guests for our sleep aboard but they ended up arriving at the same time, so take their delivery time as a very rough estimate.

Provisioning online is always hit or miss. I always mark “no substitutions” in the notes section. Sometimes it works sometimes it doesn’t. Thankfully there’s a great small Riteway next to TMM where we can pick up last minute items.

I email them directly. naturallytasty@hotmail.com Owners are Ayana and Philip. They will work with you on options depending on your interests. Last trip we ordered:
Sautéed shrimp with coconut curry sauce and coconut rice
Sweet crunch salad (the dressing is wonderful)
BBQ chicken (full chickens in quarters)
Mac and cheese (amazing - we freeze several containers)
Breakfast sandwiches on their biscuits (fresh and individually packed to heat in oven)
Pepperoni pizza (ask for cooked pizzas freezer wrapping) - medium fits well in the freezer and is great for lunch or dinner where you want little effort. They will also do uncooked and wrapped for freezing
Quiche (cooked, can be frozen)
Coconut chocolate chip cookies and brownies (wow)
Premixed gallon of Hurricanes - they will do a variety of drinks

The food is really good and the service amazing. They are located across from the ferry dock in Roadtown and have great breakfasts and a grab and go counter BTW. Tell them Melanie referred you.

This sounds amazing! Thank you for sharing the recommendation! Editing to ask... do they deliver to the boat? Or do you go pick it up?

They deliver to the boat. It is so nice having a first night meal delivered - including beverages smile. They also have excellent juices and lemonade btw.
