The Marine General Store has been standing since 1870, and it's probably not the place that you'd expect to find a bakery! Yet...There it is! The Marine General Store has an amazing bakery in the back. Just follow your nose! The delightfully warm baked scents that fill the store will make you drool in delight.

The Marine General Store is located in Marine on St. Croix and isn't going away anytime soon. Cookies, cupcakes, pies, and breads, this bakery has homemade baked goods that will bring back memories of your childhood and grandma's wonderful treats.



The Bakery features freshly baked loaves of bread, rolls, and buns, French Meadow take-and-bake cookies, and amazing pies that change with the seasons. Like brownies? Yep. They've got those too. Donuts, muffins, gluten-free items, and yes...they do custom cakes, and with Valentine's Day right around the corner, they aren't forgetting that romance is alive and well. Maybe you want a Valentine's Day cake and a dozen roses? If so, the Marine General Store will take care of you.

This great location has so much packed into its space. Groceries, a deli, a meat and dairy department, as well as the fantastic bakery we mentioned, and of course a produce department that quite often offers organic and/or locally grown items, plus general merchandise. Whether you're fishing, camping, needing a gift or simply out of dish soap, Marine's General Store has your back.

You can find The Marine General Store at 1010 Judd Street, Marine on St. Croix, 55047.
