Offerings you may want to check out…


Greg Hutchins of Heritage Farm has outstanding grass-fed Meats! On Special this week: Smoked Pork Shank! I have ordered this item a couple of times and am always pleased with the meatiness and taste!

Some Chicken cuts are available! Chicken Sausage, Chicken Backs, Chicken Legs, Chicken Wings! Greg has other Chickens that are on Pasture and growing. Whole Chickens and other cuts will be available next month!


Turkeys are available for Pre-Order and average about 15#‘s. In addition to whole birds, Heritage Farm will also be offering Turkey Carcasses and Ground Turkey soon! There is definitely Turkey Bone Broth in my future!


Don’t forget to check out Alpaca and Water Buffalo offerings from Carrell Farms. I am partial to the Sage and Cranberry Alpaca Sausage!


Burnell Farms is going strong bringing us some great veggies! Several weeks ago they added Hibiscus Flowers, (great for drying and making Hibiscus Tea), Fennel, Kohlrabi,‘Cheddar’ Cauliflower, ‘Violet Queen’ Cauliflower, Baby Spinach, 5 Lettuce varieties. Burnell Farms also offers: Brussel Sprouts, Broccoli, Kale, Carrots, Beets and those wonderful little Cream Petite Potatoes!


Vicky of Fry Farm has added some new offerings this week! Asparagus, Lettuce Mix, ‘Cherry Belle’ Radishes, ‘French Breakfast’ Radishes, Hakurei Turnips and ‘Red Kitten’ Spinach! So glad that Vicky, Steve and Matt are back and I look forward to them adding additional offerings as Mother Nature allows. Our very own Sarah Rockey is helping out at Fry Farm this year!


I have spoken with Doug of Doug’s Garden who is busy, busy, busy training new helpers and getting seedlings planted! This week he has: Green Garlic, Leaf Lettuce Mix, ‘Lancer’ Parsnips and Young and Tender Spinach!


The Veggie Patch is offering: Fruit Seedlings, Herb Seedlings, Veggie Seedlings, Fresh Herbs, Medicinal Herbs, Sauces, Pickles and lots of fresh Veggies. Be sure and check out all of their items!


Ricky of Back River Farm will be back soon!


George and Krista Jones of Cedar Seeder also known as High Garden Center have moved to a new location. Actually the move took place a while back and George has had his hands full, building and re-vamping the property! These changes will ensure that we all will be getting their fresh Microgreens very soon. Can’t wait to enjoy their Wraps again!


I am really enjoying the Gluten Free Cinnamon Rolls offered by Marie Wheeler of Bakery on Brooks! (Actually, I enjoy all of Marie’s creations, but these rolls are such a decadent Breakfast Treat I just had to give them a special ‘two thumbs up’! Marie started baking Gluten Free items for the Market last Summer. She started out with Oatmeal Raisin, Chocolate Chip and Chocolate Chip Oat Cookies and they were so popular and delicious, Marie became inspired! Nothing is offered at the Market until it passes muster with her husband, Chuck! (Chuck does not have to eat Gluten Free, but because Marie does, he joins her! What a sweetheart he is!) It’s no wonder they recently celebrated their 40th Anniversary! Try Marie;s Breads, Cookies, Paleo Treats, new Butter Cake, Cinnamon Rolls, Cinnamon Raisin Bread – you will wonder why you waited to go Gluten Free!


While Marie is keeping us supplied with Organic Gluten Free Baked Goods, Dabrielle of My Daily Bread provides us with traditional wheat based Organic Baked Goods! From Challah, Sourdough, Ezekiel and other yummy Breads to Sweet Breads, Cookies, Jams and Jellies, Cheese Dips and Pasta Salads, Dabrielle is passionate about quality! Check out her Gluten Free Pasta Salad which is on Special this week! Be sure and get your order in before close of Market!

United States Virgin Islands:  This week in VI Locally Grown!


Dear VI Locally Grown members,

There is a lot to choose from the market this week, including many greens, lettuce, kale, eggs, and mango pasture-raised pork cuts (chops, ham, ribs, stew) and there will be a lot more in the coming weeks as Ridge to Reef’s CSA program draws to a close for the winter season and many crops normally sent to the CSA will become available, so please help us eat some of the great organic food we are growing! Also, our CSA has just opened up for registrations for the 2015 Summer season, starting the first week of June. Sign up for regular access to R2R’s organic produce! http://www.ridge2reef.org/csa-registration-page.html The market at Little La Grange has been so pleasant lately under the large saman trees. With easy breezes and filtered light coming from above. Last week we all dreamed up having a lawn concert on the site, we will see what comes out of it! Thanks for shopping with us this week and supporting our organic food growing habits. Your food is currently being tended and watered with loving care.

Have a great week and we hope to see you Wednesday,

Nate & the VI Locally Grown producers
