Saturday’s ARTfarm Summer Pop-up is a mango mashup. We will have Mallika mangoes from our good friend Alex with Tropical Exotics Farm.
Mallika mangoes are one of Farmer Luca‘s favorite mangoes. They are green to yellow medium to large mangoes, with no fibers to get stuck in your teeth. Very nice, warm flavor with citrus scent.
Also ARTfarm grown mangoes including Nam doc mai, and Haitian kidney! Not very many of our own mangoes because this drought is ongoing. For flavor descriptions, enjoy our Mango Flavor Guide.
Other items: A few sweet summer papayas, and literally just a couple dragonfruit for the earliest early birds. We will also have three types of turmeric, garlic chives, kefir lime leaves, lemongrass (aka “fever grass” – makes a cooling bush tea drink), and at long last – a few dozen fresh eggs from our littlest farmer’s own flock of chickens. She is working on a gorgeous label for her packaging.
Pineapple slips (baby plants) have been flying out the door at ARTfarm lately. These drought resistant plants are great to plant on a hillside or in a large pot. We’ll have a couple dozen slips for sale at the pop-up, the same Sugarloaf variety we grow and sell. Our easy Pineapple Grower’s Guide with helpful video tutorial can help you get started with your own mini pineapple farm.
We look forward to seeing you Saturday, 11 to 11:30. We won’t have any salad mix available, sorry folks. Please mask up and social distance!
A July pop-up stand! Red dragonfruits are so sweet!! Come see us and stock up because you never know when the next pop-up will be! First come first serve starting at 11am Saturday til’ the line is done. Come stock your fridge with fresh permaculturey produce from your friendly local regenerative soil-building farming nerds!
Farmer Luca will greet you Saturday to provide lots of sweet summer salad mix, lots of red (inside and out) dragonfruit, and for the early birds we’ll have a few fresh pineapples, small amounts of Thai mangoes and sweet papaya. Also available: lots of ginger and turmeric, plus seasoning peppers, baby bok Choi, garlic chives, lemongrass, and kaffir leaves… and Pineapple slips (baby pineapple plants for growing your own pineapple). (Text ahead if you want more than half a dozen pine slips so we can prep them for you, they are $2-4 per plant depending on size.)
Farmer Luca swore the ginger and turmeric were done last month but then he discovered a forgotten patch while planting out next year‘s crop. So we have some beautiful freshly harvested ginger and turmeric, surprise!
We look forward to seeing you — once again please, from the bridge of your nose to your beautiful forehead! We are still wearing masks and require that you do the same during our transactions. Kindly please maintain social distancing in the line, as everyone has their own comfort (and immune) level. You are awesome!

Good morning ARTfarm supporters, we are completely sold out of box shares for Saturday March 14th 2020 and already have a pretty long waiting list. Sorry if we were not able to help you today.
If you have not received an email from us with an order number, that means that we cannot fill your order, even if you placed one online yesterday. If you do not have an email with an order number, please do not come to the farm today. The whole point is to limit contact to keep us all safe and healthy.
Feel free to sign up for emails on our website to be informed if we are able to provide the ‘box’ service again. It is starting to be the end of the season and, as usual, we are going to have less and less produce at this time of year.
We are truly sorry that the sign-up process was not clear. We did not have a plan in place for coronavirus and we did our best but it was a pretty slapdash order system that needs improvement. Our apologies if you found it confusing or if we left you empty-handed today.
Thanks everyone! Stay safe and stay healthy and try to stay home if you can.
