Farmer’s Market and power outages

  • The second monthly Farmer's Market in Cruz Bay will be held Sunday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the lower level of the Lumberyard, where the WAPA office and the liquor stores used to be.  

Not the most "eco-friendly" confines, but it's the real stuff and it's fresh.
Karen Samuel, a St. Johnian who's been active with environmental and historic groups, organized the first farmer's market last month.  She called it a success and told the St. John Source, "The place smelled and looked good, and people had a good time,."

Most of the vendors are from St. Thomas.

  • Electricity is in shorter supply.  Seems the Water and Power Authority has been scheduling some rolling blackouts on STT which, unexpectedly, seem to bleed over to STJ, too.  

WAPA says it's necessary to do maintenance on equipment.  One local, on a St. John travel forum, worried that the outages don't bode well for keeping cool the rest of the summer.
