Fresh Fish Market

Is there a fresh fish market on STT? I am pretty sure there is. Hubby wants to go and pick up some "right off the boat" seafood. Can anyone tell me where the market is located and if you know what time the boats come in? He would like to run to the market early one morning and pick up some fresh fish/seafood for us to cook for dinner one night. thanks

The 3 most common morning fish selling locations are:


Lionel Roberts Stadium

Smith Bay/Coki rd. intersection

The sport fishing boats at AYH and Sapphire return about 4-5 PM

I am wondering if this information is still correct or if anyone has an update for us on finding fresh fish.

My wife and i will be there in a few weeks and we will be sure to post an update here for everyone!

Enjoy St Thomas!

Where will you be staying? The list localsailor provided lists most of the regular markets, and the boats usually come in early in the morning, say 7 a.m. or even earlier.

There's also a guy who sells fish right off the boat on the Waterfront on Tuesdays and Saturdays only. He comes over from Tortola, and he usually has fish later in the morning. I think it was around 1 or 2 p.m. when I got a fish from him last week. A "doctah" fish. He had others, but I wanted to try something small and different.

There's a local seafood distributor in Crown Bay who sells fresh local fish. S&P Seafoods. 340-774-5280

Might be easier than trying to connect with the charter boats coming in at the dock.

Special thanks to doug895 and Ms411for your comments. My wife and I will be in St Thomas at the end of October. We will be near Red Hook. I will be sure to post any updates during our trip.

We were just there and there is a stand just past 322 on the road that goes to Red Hook that has fish around 4:00. It looks like nothing but a local lobster fisherman we knew recommended it. Also, the woman behind the fruit stand told us how to cook plantains and how to pick them out.

Good luck!

Oh... just past the 322 going East for this fish stand is basically in Red Hook. This is great!

Here is a cool map so everyone can see: www.virgin-islands-on-line.com/st/stmap.shtml

Thank you everyone!
