Seafood market in town?

We'll be cooking at home a lot, and wondered if there is a place in Cruz Bay to buy fresh fish. Also, what's the best market to buy fresh produce.

Try the Fish Trap Market for fresh fish. Can't speak to anything other than the shrimp we bought there which was really tasty but everything else in the case looked really fresh.

We have bought fish at Fish Trap Market many times during our trips. If you call Aaron ahead of time and let him know if you have specific requests, he will do his best to accommodate. For us, it's caribbean lobsters and we call ahead and he texts us when he has them. His prices are very reasonable and the fish is fresh, Besides, he has the cutest little boy you've ever seen. And if you don't want to cook, eat at the restaurant - yummy, yummy food.

Fresh produce is a bit of an oxymoron on STJ, as nothing is really grown in the VI so everything is flown in.

Josephine has her farm out in Coral Bay and you can by her greens at Starfish and I believe Dolphin and STJ Market.

Remember that Shrimp is flown in as well. You best bet would be Mahi, Tuna, or Wahoo

Thank you, thank you for this info!

For years we have wanted to grill local lobsters at the villa. This might be our year.
