Our team members are courteous and knowledgeable and are always ready go the extra mile to satisfy our customers.

Our Vision

Our vision is to harness technology, innovation and partnerships to become globally recognized as the premier supplier of Caribbean goods and services.


On December 11, 2018, Sam's Caribbean Marketplace celebrated it's 25th anniversary.  Over those years, Sam's Caribbean Marketplace has set the standard by which Caribbean stores are measured, primarily because we make a conscious effort to treat our customers with the respect and dignity they deserve. 

Sam's Caribbean Marketplace is famous for its awesome Caribbean cuisine and Jamaican-style patties.  The retail store offers a wide variety of other Caribbean foods, from ackees to yams and Caribbean cookbooks loaded with recipes of traditional as well as novel Caribbean cuisine.  We also stock Caribbean flags and hundreds of other Caribbean novelties. 

We at Sam's have proudly served over 2 million customers throughout the years, and we have done so with a high degree of honesty, integrity, and reliability.   

We can't wait to serve you.
