The La Reine Farmer’s Market is a cultural and culinary delight on St. Croix! Local farmers and fishermen set up stands on Saturday as early as 5am just south of La Reine Chicken Shack and the bus stop.
At the La Reine Market there’s an abundance of fruits, vegetables, herbs, honey, eggs, plants, baked goods, cold brew coffee, kombucha, bush tea, fresh fish, and artisan items. You’ll find the usual island produce, like cucumbers, bananas, tomatoes, avocados, papaya… And you’ll likely be exposed to something new, like dried sorrel flowers for making tea, mesple, egg fruit, soursop, sugar apple, and so much more!
