We are so blessed to live on a tropical island with a climate that allows for St Croix Farmers’ Markets year-round with fresh fruits and vegetables. For me, farm-to-table isn’t a new concept. It’s a way of life that I grew up with! While you’re here, be sure to visit one or more of our many farmers’ markets and stands throughout the island. Pro-tip: Whenever you can, eat local and shop local.

Our growing season on St Croix is a bit different than stateside. During our tourist season November - March, we have balmy tradewinds and evening rain showers that allow for an amazing growing season. During this time you'll find St Croix Farmers' Markets with plenty of locally grown tomatoes, cucumbers, leafy salad greens, herbs, watermelon, local pumpkin, and squashes. You'll also find a variety of tropical fruits and vegetables.
During the heat of the summer months, mangoes are in season along with other tropical fruits. Summer is sweet in the Caribbean!
