The Market Place has three levels of shops. On the first level you can find the Starfish grocery store. They have great to go foods such as salads, sandwiches, hot foods, and rotisserie chicken! They carry the ShurFine brand of goods. The prices here are more expensive than the Dolphin Market in town; one Apple will cost you $4 a... More

We made several stops here for everything during our stay. Sandwich items, roasted chicken, ice cream, lettuce, breakfast stuff, muffins at their bakery, beer,and bottled water. Well stocked, familiar brands, clean. Convenient to our rental in Cruz Bay - it did not disappoint. Other posts complained of rude employees, but that was not our experience. We actually found the visitors... More

Lots of great produce, meats and fresh bakery. This is a pretty good stop when planning to eat in. Prices range from $4.95 for frozen OJ to $2.99 for Cherries (in season). Island prices - be forewarned!

The woman who works at the store (not sure if she is the owner) is one of the nastiest people I have ever met. As a frequent visitor st STJ with my family, we often are in need of DVDs to entertain the kids at night. On each occasion while visiting the store, she is rude, offensive and just plain... More

The Starfish Market was well stocked and clean. Prices are very high on the island but the quality of produce and meats at Starfish made the cost less painful

We went here after going to Dolphin Market. Dolphin Market was more run down, while Starfish Market (The Marketplace) was much nicer and better laid out. Needless to say, the staff was very rude. They didn't acknowledge me once while checking out, and handed me my bags. I then said "Thank you, have a great night" and didn't even get... More

Short walk here from Cruz Bay dock, but the grocery store had it all and the prices were the best we saw on the island. It had a fancy vibe, similar to a Whole Foods. Everything was clean and the staff was very friendly. We picked up some sandwiches and prepackaged meals because the deli upstairs happened to be closed... More

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.
