Does anyone know where I can buy local honey here or on St John?

Here's the number for Honeyman on STX... he would likely know who you can find. 8)

Someone harvests in the west. They do set up a table in the evenings, on weekend,s on the waterfront. I see them there occasionally. The other BBQ stand that sets up across from the waterfront, by the corne,r by the USO is where I see them. I am sure they can tell you when they come.

Call the UVI co-operative extension. They work with beekeepers and can give you names.

From the title, I thought this was going to be a personals ad.

Check St John Spice. They carry more than just spices.

I have seen local honey even at Plaza Extra on STT. It is in with the other stuff up on the top shelf in smaller, more expensive containers. Sometimes a nice woman sells it by the entrance to Cost You Less too.

You can also get local honey at the market near Emancipation Garden on STT on Sat mornings. Not sure if the honey people go to every farmers' market, but I know I see some there every Sat.

There's a woman from STX who comes and sets up shop outside Cost-u-less on Fridays or Mondays (can't remember) she also sells at the YHG farmers market.

Her name is Theresa, I think, but some people know her by a nickname like Cruso or something like that. I've purchased guavaberry from her and avocados. Always good stuff!

Can you still get Guavaberry rum? I'd like to try it... sounds delish! Also get my local honey from Plaza in TuTu.

There is local honey on STJ… I forget who does it. However, there is always a flyer on the bulletin board walking into Starfish Market for the local honey and who/where to call to buy. I have a jar now and it is very good, sweet and thin.
