Grocery & Home Goods Stores

Navigating and doing your grocery shopping here can be hard because you’re trying to find which store has it in stock but also which place has the best deal for it. Below are stores I use to buy certain items.

Bertist: this guy delivers eggs

  • WhatsApp: 767-617-1629

IGA: You can find most food items here but it’s expensive and it has to be in stock

  • Frozen vegetables
  • Bok choy
  • Rice
  • Flour
  • Cocoa powder
  • Butterscotch chips
  • Chocolate chips (but super expensive on the island!)

James Store

  • Basically anything you can imagine for home goods

Picard Market & Grocery (across from Jenner, behind Le Petit): my favorite place for meat since it’s the best deal I can find

  • Boneless chicken breast
  • Ground turkey meat
