Earlier this summer, we showed some love to our farmers’ markets. This week we wanted to take the time to introduce to you local farm stands and shops!
St. Thomas is surrounded by countless fields, providing local farmers with plenty of space to grow produce, curate cheese, meats and so much more. These farmers and families dedicate endless hours to providing us with local, organic and delicious food for our community. In order to share it all with the community, many of them have access points right where they grow their food!
Why is it important to support these farm stands and stores? By buying local, the money you spend goes back directly to your community! You also support these local businesses and allow them to continue to do what they love. Let’s take a look into the lovely businesses here in St. Thomas and surrounding areas!
