First off, I live here and am a responsible adult. I bought some yogurt and frozen strawberries at 10am and tried to return them 2 hours later after they had been stored in the fridge/freezer. They give me the excuse that they cannot accept any perishable items once it has left the door and point to the posted sign under... More

The Starfish grocery store is the only place to shop in the Cruz Bay area. The prices are higher than the states, though not too much. The meat selection is good, some prices being the same as we pay stateside. Amazing. Good produce and canned goods selection. Across the way, they have a wine and liquor store. The wine is... More

We stopped here a couple of times to get supplies for our one week Villa stay. They had a great selection of food from steaks to veggies. One night we bought a tasty rotisserie chicken. They even have a well stocked liquor store next door. It's an easy taxi ride to and from.

We stopped in many times throughout our trip! The Starfish Market was perfect to grab groceries so that breakfast in the villa was a breeze. We even picked up deli items for days spent on remote beaches. There's a pharmacy on the second floor (the only one we found in St. John!) and a liquor store. When you need to... More

This is a decent sized market, has a good deli section with prepared foods. The meat case leaves a little to be desired. Watch prices and shop around, although this is a good overall market, some of the other markets in town can have better prices on things.

The Starfish Grocery has great sandwiches. Fill out the form at the deli counter, but be sure to keep reminding the staff what you want, since they only read and follow your order 30% of the time! :) Good meats, fresh veggies and fruits at prices you'd expect in St John. Check the specials flier at the entryway to take... More

Forgot something? Need to restock? Feeling queasy? The Marketplace is where you need to go. This complex has a grocery store (Starfish Market) that has meats, seafood, fruits, vegetables, toiletries, dry food (pasta, rice, etc.), beverages and more. We got water from here for our hikes and refilled the bottles with treated water when we ran out. The second floor... More

The Marketplace was one of our first stops on the island to stock up for a few days. Starfish market is NOT more expensive than Dolphin market even though several reviewers have mentioned this in their reviews. Prices are similar however Starfish Market has a much larger variety of items, great steaks, good deli, breads, veggies, cut up fresh fruit,... More
