There are five major supermarkets in St Kitts:
Fresh produce is available along with many poultry and fish options. Fresh red meat is not always readily available and can be expensive. There are many vegetarian grocery items as well. Ross University also has arrangements with local producers for vegetables, fruits, eggs, and Grade A Angus beef which is be sold on campus every Wednesday.
Other fresh and locally produced food can be found on the St Kitts and Nevis Farmers Market Facebook group.
There are many places in downtown Basseterre that stock a variety of household items. Fans, Rubbermaid products, cooking items, hangers, shower curtains, linens, towels, etc., may be found in these stores. These stores include:
Buying large ticket items before you arrive in St. Kitts and shipping or bringing them with you may be more cost effective. We suggest packing a semester’s supply of personal hygiene products/toiletries, your own personal linens, towels, and school supplies including binders, pens, pencils, sharpeners, erasers, etc. We also recommend bringing your own cutlery, shower curtains, bath mats, alarm clocks with a back up battery, flashlights, and desk lamp. While packing, please leave behind any Army-style clothing such as camouflage pants, hats, jackets, etc. These are restricted items and will be confiscated by customs.
