Online Option Makes It Easier To Shop At The Market

Written by Coconut Post

Whether you’re in St. Thomas, Virgin Islands as a visitor, a local — or always in spirit — Coconut Post keeps you posted on fun-filled news ’n views. Published monthly by Flamboyan On The Bay Resort & Villas, we’re focused on sharing our people, places, and fun things happening in paradise.

November, 2021

Formerly known as Plaza Extra, The Market in Tutu Park Mall recently was rebranded with a new name — and fresh look. Perhaps equally exciting is the addition of online shopping with curbside pickup. What a terrific time-saving option for residents and island visitors to enjoy!

The family-owned operation was established in the mid-seventies and over four decades has grown into a major supermarket while still maintaining the friendly energy of a small business. With that concept in mind, The Market makes it a point to feature a terrific choice of locally sourced produce and meats. 

Whether shopping online or in-person, you will find an extensive inventory of groceries and dry goods. The dairy department is stocked with fine cheeses, yogurt, butter, and a large selection of eggs, milk, and juices.

Top of the page: At The Market, you will find an extensive selection of beer, liquor, wine, and champagne.  

The Market also has a large liquor and wine selection including locally brewed beer, vodka, and a full selection of flavored rum. The expansive wine selection makes it a breeze to pair your favorite wine with cheeses, seafood, and meats. 

At The Market, the meat department is stocked with pork, poultry, seafood, and the finest cuts of USDA Certified Angus meats prepared by experienced butchers. 

The in-house deli and bakery carries Stone House wraps and subs, pre-made salads, sliced meats, and cheeses in addition to specialty cakes and pastries.  Local hot food is served daily for breakfast and lunch. 

Customer service is “key” at The Market. If you are hosting a get-together, the deli staff will be pleased to prepare party platters.

The Market is located in Tutu Park Mall. From Flamboyan Resort, turn left onto Route 42, drive one mile and turn right onto Route 39. At the first stop sign, turn right followed by an immediate left, continuing downhill to the end of Route 39. Turn left onto Route 38. At the first traffic light, turn left into the mall.

A BIT ABOUT USVI STREET NAMES

The King of Denmark ruled these islands for nearly two centuries — until 1917. To this day, you will find many downtown street names from that era still remain. For example, Kongens Gade (pronounced Gä-da) translates in English to King Street. Dronningens Gade means Queen Street, and Prindsens Gade —you guessed it — is Prince Street.
