Sarah and Addie was written by a young writer by the name of Anton Teytaud who grew up on the island of St. Croix. The writer wrote 19 short skits on the life of two market ladies on the island of St. Croix. The short skits were produced in the Virgin Islands. They were all taped at the Christian “Shan” Hendricks market in Christiansted, St. Croix by WTJX PBS Television station.

The Christian “Shan” Hendricks Market on St. Croix was named after a butcher that operated his shop in the square. The Market square has been in continuous use since 1750’s. The well found next to the market dates from 1863. In 1989 Hurricane Hugo destroyed the market but it was rebuilt by Rotary Club of Olathe, Kansas, Rotary International, The Rotary Clubs of St. Croix and the Government of the Virgin Islands in 1990.
