"The little food market that could" has the cheapest grocery prices in town. The latest market basket survey by the Virgin Islands Department of Licensing and Consumer Affairs said a sample of 28 items at Pine Peace, at the foot of Jacob's Ladder, was priced at $131.16.
Dolphin Market, in Cruz Bay, was second cheapest at $132.21. Starfish Market, at the Marketplace Shopping Center, had a total cost of $135.20 which is only two percent higher than Pine Peace.
In fact, there wasn't much difference in food prices among three of the island's
best know grocery stores.
