This Week in VI Locally Grown


Hello VI Locally Grown members!

The seasons are changing; can you feel it? With these changes come new, delicious crops. Mangoes are coming really soon. If you come early, you might be able to get some from our first harvest of the year! We will also have tamarind, watermelon, papaya, zucchini, pattypan squash, crookneck squash, okra, and cucumbers.

We’re glad you all enjoyed our new location on the Lawaetz property. Since it was so well received, we’ll keep it there for now. For those of you who haven’t seen the change yet, please turn right at the gazebo and we will be in the picnic area under the huge Saman tree.

We understand that we are selling out of some items towards the end of the market. It’s a delicate balance of bringing just the right amount each week to reduce waste. Since the market is growing, we will gradually increase the amount of extra items. However, the best way to ensure you get exactly what you want is to use our online ordering system. We really appreciate it when you do!

Thank you for your support and we will see you on Wed!

Best,
Castiel

This week, we will bring our delicious certified organic heirloom tomatoes, and cherry tomatoes. We aren’t sure how many we will have, so we are not listing them here in the market, they will be first-come-first-serve!

Also note the introduction of the moringa powder and capsules from Moringa Lion/ Ridge to Reef Farm, some of the only certified organic moringa available on the market today. Discover the miracle bundle of benefits from this amazing superfood grown right here in the rainforest.
