ARTfarm Mango & Greens Pop-up 9/24/22 Saturday 11:30am!

Nam doc Mai mangoes from Tropical Exotics orchard on St. Croix are fiberless, buttery smooth and sweet.

Water water everywhere! Thanks to Tropical Storm Fiona and other weather events passing through the area, we have been blessed with over six inches of rain and the catchment ponds are finally refilling!

Saturday 9/24/22 Pop-up at the ARTfarm 11:30am — 12 noon: Sweet salad mix and Thai mangoes! Lots of Nam Doc Mai mangoes from Alex at Tropical Exotics orchard — wisely picked right before TS Fiona so fruits wouldn’t get bruised from falling — ready/ripe in the next three days, priced as marked.

We’ll also have sweet salad mix, sweet onions with delicious green tops. Early birds will also choose from sweet potatoes, garlic chives, lemongrass, mango/white turmeric, kafir leaves, and zinnia flowers. Also, pineapple slips for down-the-road DIY piña coladas.

Tropical Storm Fiona dropped over 6 inches of rain on the ARTfarm over several days. Our largest lined pond is approaching capacity.
If the soil has some moisture in it from previous rains, it takes a minimum of 4 inches of rain over less than a week, to get the guts running to fill the unlined dam (pond) on the east end of the ARTfarm pastures. Tropical Storm Fiona was able to fill it 3/4 full! This will help to recharge the water tables on the South Shore.

First come first serve. No reservation required!

Farmer Luca and family wants to take a moment to encourage everyone to support local farmers. If you can’t make it to our farmstand, Sejah Farm is a wonderful farm/market that sells their own produce plus lots of produce from all over St. Croix. They have a wide selection and are open more hours and days than we are.

There is also the Saturday farmers market at the Department of Agriculture grounds where you can buy directly from farmers.

Remember the best way to support agriculture in the US Virgin Islands is to buy produce directly from farmers.

Hop down to the South Shore and see Farmer Luca!
