When I first came to St. John, the availability of food besides fish and locally grown produce was limited to say the least. All you could count on was salt fish, a big block of cheese and Saltine crackers. A lady came from Tortola with fresh vegetables once a week and we’d have occasional visits by a schooner from Puerto Rico loaded with fruit and vegetables.
Now we have three supermarkets and several convenience markets. You can even get organic stuff, but you better check prices before you decide.
