Hello all, not finding any up to date information on TA regarding food and liquor shopping on St John. Staying in the Chocolate Hole area. I see the St John Gourmet Market by the Westin, Starfish and Dolphin Markets for food. Are any better for one stop shopping and where is the best pricing on liquor and beer to be found. Thank you for any information.

I believe you listed them in what is likely the price order - highest to lowest. All of them have at least beer/wine as well. Starfish always had a good selection of seafood/meats as I recall. Dolphin was better prices - but not as "foodie."

If you are renting a car in St Thomas and taking the car barge the shopping on STT is much better for price and availability.
CostUless is a good 1st stop with Plaza Extra to fill in the blanks.

Here's the result of a market basket price comparison done recently.

St John Market was cheapest, followed by Dolphin Market, then Starfish Market. That matches my experience when I shopped all 3 in pre-Irma days.

Add Pine Peace Market to the mix, between Starfish and St. John market. Dolphin has the best price on Cruzan Dark Rum. Starfish has a weekly sales circular at https://starfishmarket.com/, but there are not a lot of deals.

Cheers, RickG
