Food shopping

Hi all, I was wondering which food store to shop in on our way from Blowing Point to our town home rental in Sandy Ground. I am just looking for basic staples, breakfast food, snacks, water, wine and beer. After traveling all day we really just need a quick convenient stop to start with. Thank you. - Christina

A little bit out of your way, but not bad... take a drive west on the main road when leaving Blowing Pt. and you s/b able to get everything you need in 1 stop at the Best Buy grocery store in the West End.

You can shave a few minutes off your drive west if you take the short-cut road as you're leaving Blowing Pt. The short-cut comes out onto the main road near Gerauds pastery shop. Someone else might be able to better describe where the short-cut road is located.

ps: a better plan might be to just take the Blowing Pt. Rd up to the main road, turn left and you'll find Mingz Grocery on your right in just a short distance. it should have everything or most everything you need.

Agree. After travel you want to get to your abode. Go straight down Blowing Pt road to the light at main road. It's a "T". Turn left and IMMEDIATELY on your right is Mingz. Not big, not fancy but well stocked with what u will need for a few days and they are very accommodating.

Enjoy your stay and please do a Trip Report for us island starved folks. Even though Spring seems like it might arrive, we still crave AXA.
