For those of you who love to indulge in a delicious smoothie when you’re on St. John, you are going to love this! One of our beloved residents, Thomas, the owner of Our Market Smoothies in Cruz Bay, is in the process of expanding, and we are super excited to tell you all about it!
For those of you who are unfamiliar with Our Market Smoothies, it’s a delicious smoothie spot right in the heart of Cruz Bay. Its bright yellow walls are hard to miss, as is Thomas’s smiling face! Our Market Smoothies is located across from the Post Office and next door to Cap’s Place.
Thomas is finishing up a pretty large expansion on the property adjacent to the smoothie spot. The new space will offer ample, covered seating and great people watching opportunities, Thomas said.
Thomas moved to St. John from St. Lucia roughly 35 years ago, and has been serving up smoothies for the past 25. It’s a labor of love, he said.
“It’s something I enjoy. I’ve done food and beverage my whole life. That’s all I know how to do,” he said.
“I have a PhD in flattery too,” he added with a smile.
Thomas serves up a variety of smoothies and ice cream. He even offers drinks serves straight from a fresh coconut – with or with our rum of course. When asked which drink is his favorite, Thomas said it was hard to choose just one.
“All of the drinks are nice and some of them get jealous, so I don’t try to pick one from the next,” he said. “Although number 8 is my favorite. Passionfruit, mango, strawberry. But all are my favorite.”
Our Market Smoothies is open daily from 8 a.m. to 9 p.m. It remains number one on TripAdvisor, Thomas pointed out, and with good reason. 🙂
