I live across Oyster Pond from the Moorings base and will be there in late November. They were supposed to open a small grocery this Fall at Captain Oliver's Marina but I don't know if it has happened. There are great U S style grocery stores a taxi ride away (Gran Marche) but if you only have 5 days with the boat it may be better to go with their provisioning. Did you mean you are there for 5 days or that you have a week? You will loose time on both ends of your charter! Grand Case is the best for eating - LoLos to 5 star dining. If you go to St. Barth's, plan on mooring in Anse de Columbier and eating dinner aboard. Let me know if you want any other infomation. I leave Annapolis tomorrow for Fort Lauderdale and then will be in Sint Maarten after the 14th.
