A must-visit market in the Virgin Islands

For most of the week, Crucians (i.e. people from St. Croix) line up outside of the Le Reine Chicken Shack for the best rotisserie chicken in the Caribbean. On Saturday mornings, though, they're there for the small market that takes place behind the restaurant. Imagine your local farmers' market, but replace half of the items with things you've never heard of. That's the La Reine Farmers' Market.
