We will be spending a month on the east end of St Croix this spring. We are looking for recommendations on grocery stores, places to purchase booze, and fresh fish. Where do the locals shop? Any Farmers Markets?

bring your own fish.........local produce found on most main roads at small stands and as post above the 2 local farms. fish can be found but need to check eyes for blurriness and gills for slime both indicate an old dead fish.........before i moved here i brought my fish and meat frozen in a disposable suitcase..........even with current checkon prices will still save lots of money

You can bring frozen fish, but you can't find the same local fish on the mainland! I would advise to buy from the road stand, but make sure you take snapper's advice and be on the lookout for bad fish, one tip is to make sure you buy as EARLY as possible (between 6 and 8 am) to avoid getting fish that has been in the sun for 6 hours.

watch what you buy at some roadside stands, some of it was bought at grocery stores and sold at the stands
