Meals purchased at markets or in restaurants are often delicious and comfortably filling, but will not sustain travellers long on the road. Most markets offer travelers packs of rations in quantity. Prices vary greatly from towne to towne. Farmers will usually be glad to sell the passing traveller eggs, fruits, vegetables or whatever else they produce. At the Farmer's Market in Britain, the fruits, vegetables, eggs and meats produced on the farms of Britannia may be found for sale.

For a quick meal one could do no better than to sample the wares of the local food vendor. To find the local food vendor, one need only listen for his friendly bark and call.

History Edit

Traditional Groceries always existed in Britannia; from Ultima V onwards, the Taverns also sold food to the traveler. Beginning in Ultima VII, new sources like slaughterhouses and the farmer's market appeared.

Lore Edit

Little is worse than being far from a town and finding thyself and one's companions starving to death because the person in charge of the expedition (thou) hast forgotten to buy enough food. Be sure to lay in a plentiful supply at each opportunity. Thy fellow travelers will most certainly be appreciative of thy foresight.

Since the times before our great societal expansion, farming and animal husbandry have been the cornerstones of the Britannian economy. It is the farmer who grows fine grains for the baker and the baker who makes our bread. It is the rancher who tends the cattle for meat and dairy products, keeping our stores and pubs filled with the necessities of life. In life like manner, the shepherd supplies wool to the makers of cloth who, in turn, enable the clothiers to ply their trade. In these and many other ways, Britannia owes its livelihood to the persistent laborers of the soil.

Most of the major towns in Britannia have at least one shop dedicated to caring for the traveler's need for food and supplies.The wise traveler will learn to examine the varied inventories carried by different merchants, making note of the shopkeepers who stock rare and unusual items - one never knows when such knowledge may be of use.

While in recent years a series of droughts has hurt agricultural production in certain areas of Britannia, most farmers are enjoying a resurgence of bountiful harvests. Farmers will usually be glad to sell the passing traveller eggs, fruits, vegetables or whatever else they produce.
