There's a small expensive market in the village called Tap 5. Not much of a selection.

Agree with sxmlover - we're not fans of Tap 5 grocer - well worth a drive to a larger less expensive grocery.

See the link above for locations of grocers - locally bottled water is inexpensive - other brands cost a bit more.

Yes, the only one you can walk to.

You will pay a premium to buy groceries on the French side.

I suggest you rethink having a car. You are going to feel like a captive at Orient Bay. The little market has enough to get you by, but the prices are high to maybe intentional mistakes. The US Market on the way to Grand Case is quite nice, has a good selection, and the prices are reasonable, but its a $20 cab ride. Rentacars are not that expensive, and you are going to want to go to Grand Case, Marigot, and maybe Pinel.

If you are concerned about the price of water, you had better hold on to your hat. You are in for Parisian prices.
