Auspicious Dragonfruit Pop-Up Saturday!! Sign up for a pickup slot!!

It’s finally time for a pop-up stand for fruit bounty from ARTfarm! After a dry summer, we finally received some rainshowers in the last month or so and the dragonfruit vines woke up.

Once again we will NOT BE OPEN for retail shopping on Saturday. Until further notice, we are going to run socially distanced online ‘box sales’ like we’ve done since March 21st, with pre-reserved pick up shifts of 10 people max, to slow the spread of novel coronavirus in our island community. We want to avoid long waits, traffic issues and crowds forming. As per guidelines from Government House, we require everyone picking up a box to wear a mask, and we will do the same.

Getting a farm share box is as easy as S-A-N, as in SAN-ta’s watching you. Here’s what to do:

  1.   S  is for :  Sign up with our sign-up form (a link at the bottom of the weekly signup page is posted on Fridays, usually by around 10am).
    • Choose ONE pre-selected, pre-priced share of ARTfarm produce (minimum purchase, contents listed below)
    • Choose any add-on items (limited supplies)
    • Commit to a pick-up time slot
  2.   A is for :  Arrive on Saturday at (or wait in your car until) your appointed time in the ARTfarm parking lot on Saturday. Too many people showing up at the same time could risk exposure. Please maintain plenty of space between customers, and between us and you when you approach the pickup table. We’ll be wearing masks as an extra precaution and require that you do the same. We do it to protect you! Please protect us!
    • Bring exact change or a check to drop in the bucket – we are not handling any money.
    • There inevitably are extra items available to add to your box at pickup time, so you may wish to bring some extra small bills or wait to fill in your check amount. Please bring your own pen.
    • Bring your own bags or box to put your produce into. We’ll place your items on the sanitized table, some things will be pre-bagged, you’ll pack your own bags or box for the rest. Wait to bag until we do a final count of your items to make sure we don’t forget anything.
  3.   N is for :  No substitutions or price adjustments. To maintain sanitation and keep things moving, we are not swapping items, handling payments or making change.
    • We’ll do our best to give you options at pickup if we can, to meet or exceed the value.
    • If desired, you can leave any unwanted items from your share on the table and we will pass them on to another lucky customer!

Please contact us immediately by text and phone at (340)514-4873 if you have reserved a farmshare and cannot pick it up. Supply is limited, demand is extremely high and someone else will gladly purchase your share, if given enough time to respond. We have limited time for distributions and they are scheduled. We will hold your box for you and we expect to hear from you. We understand life happens, but please do not leave us hanging after hours, waiting for you, with your food! Our produce is harvested fresh before dawn, and needs to go home with you same day. This is an honor system since we are not collecting payment until pickup.

  1. Please save for me a single share of dragon fruit, plus some garlic chives. Should I arrive about 11 AM?, or do you assign a time? Anyway, thank you. Maurya McClure

    1. Please use the link at the bottom of the article to fill in the sign-up form! It will guide you to select the items you want, and choose a time slot to arrive. Thanks!

  2. So saddened that I’m just seeing this. I didn’t think you’ll be open. I live dragon fruit and Art Farm. I’ll be more diligent checking for your pop ups.

    1. It has been sporadic! The 2020 spring and summer were very dry, so the fruit season was small and late. No more pop-ups in the near future but we should be open (socially distanced) in another few weeks with salad greens and herbs and other goodies! We try not to send out too many emails! Sorry you missed us!
