Buying food in St Louis Marina in Grenada prior to sailing

Hi everyone,
Should we provision ahead of time in Grenada or just go shopping at Riteway once we arrive. We come in on 5/17 & get the boats on 5/18 by noon. We’ve opted for an early boarding with Sunsail.. Or is there a better place to shop before we leave the states to have our food delivered to the boat? We’re confused because provisioning was standard for our 2 BVI sails. It seems most think we should just wait till get there...
any suggestions would be appreciated
Thanks!
P s there are 3 boats- 2 Cats & one Monohull sailing round trip St George Grenada for 10 nights.. We’re all friends and love sailing!

I'd get a taxi to the IGA in Grand Anse. Get up early, provision and arrive at the boat for check in.

It will be cheaper.

Thank you for your response
Once we’ve picked out the food, will they deliver it to our boat for a fee or do we need to haul it there?

Personally we thought the food at the IGA was a bit more expensive, but they did have a good variety of food there. They tended to cater to the American students. The Foodland Market Square store in St. George's offered more local food at more a reasonable cost.
Don't know if either deliver but taxis and buses (vans) run that area frequently and are easy to flag down.
