Food is most commonly sold, bought and at times bartered in lively, colorful markets sprouting out of the street. Cubans get free rice, yucca and other basic foods through the communist regime’s outdated rationing book system. The guaranteed provision is fast dwindling as the island opens its economy. Meat is scarce but some in the working class who can afford it buy poultry to be raised in their own backyard. Chicks are readily available for purchase, displayed on market stalls just like this one, and just like any other goods.
