largest market in cruz bay. still...it's the islands so things are routinely out of stock (like bread and ice) so we ended up making it routine stop on our way to or from other activities or destinations. there are other shops there as well (liquor store, drug store, deli...). we frequented those too

Love starfish grocery store. Best stocked on the island and some things firmly priced. Staff at Chelsey Drugs are great! Love the Deli on level 3. MUST go there! Plenty of parking, clean bathrooms & a hardware store that has a variety of things other than just hardware items.
