Bajans buying up pork

PORK IS IT! That’s what many local butchers are saying.
Butchers operating in the Cheapside Market in Bridgetown say Barbadians are buying a lot of pork, with some reporting they sell up to 1 500 pounds a week.
Butcher Victor Sealy told the SUNDAY?SUN yesterday that it could not be debated that the most popular meat in the market was pork.
“The way pork is selling, we could see that Bajans really like a lot of pork,” he said. “I am in here on Wednesdays, Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays. I sell as much as 12 pigs a week. Right now people ain’t really buying the beef and beef and pork is the same price.
“Lamb is probably the most expensive meat in the market, going at $8 per pound. Can I have this pound of pork? Can I have that pound of pork? That is all you hear people ask when they come in the market, at least that is what I hear at my stall,” added Sealy.
