Our condo was within a mile of the Starfish market, so we came here everyday. Yes, prices here are expensive, but still way better than eating out. You can actually get some good deals though. The large lunch to-go plate is $13.50 which has enough...More

We were on a cruise which landed in St Thomas so we took the opportunity to visit St John, a picturesque "Sister Island" about an hour by taxi and ferry. A taxi from the cruise port to Red Hook Ferry Port and a 20 minute...More

The prices and selection here are better than any other grocery we have tried on St John. The only downside is that it's a $10.00 cab ride, each way, from the Cruz Bay Area. Wine and soft drinks in particular are 40-50% less than the...More

Central location, bring snacks and cookies form home as they are very high priced, other foods more reasonably priced. Meats, fish, veggies plentiful. Weigh the price against going for BBQ for supper.

It doesn't matter where you shop, whether in Cruz Bay or Coral Bay the prices TOURISTS pay for groceries is OUT OF SIGHT! Expect to pay 2 to 3 times more for everything you buy on the island of St John, as everything must be...More

Take 104 east out of Cruz Bay. Highly recommend getting The St. John App to have maps and points of interest right on your phone. Have fun on St. John!

If you have special dietary needs, it might be wise. If you're going to spend a long period of time on the island, I suppose one could ship / fly food to the final destination and make it worthwhile. Otherwise, I don't see... More
