The people of St. Croix gather every spring to celebrate their robust food culture, welcoming locals and visitors alike. This year two nonprofit organizations, the Taste of St. Croix and St. Croix Food and Wine Experience, hosted a handful of special events that activated the culinary energy of the island while raising funds for the St. Croix Foundation for Community Development and other local organizations.
In addition to the event-related experiences, the island of St. Croix is filled with adventures for food-loving folks. Below is a list of ten foodie adventures, spanning from soulful street food to the finest of dining, to experience this time of year. It is also interesting to note that, as an island that has flown seven flags, the culinary world of St. Croix shows an organic appreciation for global cuisine by combining ingredients and techniques from other cultures with classic, local Crucian flavors. Visitors should expect to be well-fed and smiling for the duration of their stay on the island of St. Croix.
