St Thomas Locally Grown Online Farmers Market is Open!


What a sunrise!

We are wishing you a great weekend! We have some new additions on the market today. See email below for this week’s offerings!

For the October Season we are now offering a Market Mystery Box!

Let us pick items for you! Its a great way to try new things and try new ingredients that you may not have tried on your own.
We’ll pack your box with some recipe ideas too. We’re doing 2 sizes, a Small-portion box and a Large-portion box. Try it and let us how your dishes came out.

Yours Truly,
Your Market Coordinators

Customer Survey before re-start!


Dear STT Locally Grown customer,

Thank you so much for joining us for our first season. We were happy that us growers and producers were able to connect with you through this new platform.

We are getting ready to re-open again and are working to improve your overall market experience.

This season we are looking to move to a more central location. I know many really enjoyed the pick up spot but many also did not. We are aiming to grow the market and make it more accessible to the whole island this season. We’ll keep you posted on that new location once all the logistics are confirmed. But so far I can tell you what we are looking for in a new pick up spot:
- more central (mid-island) for customers
- not a crowded location to maintain social distancing
- a clear easy path for a drive-thru style pick up for you where you can easily drive in and out without having to turn around or get stuck in traffic or a parking lot
- a safe place where we can store our coolers so the market coordinators don’t have to transport all the market gear every week
- and yes Shade!

Where ever we pick, I ask you be gentle on us for the move as we aim to reach more people this season.

Please take a moment to fill out our customer survey. Your feedback is important to us as we aim to provide you with another great market season!

Last Market until the Fall, get your order in!


Good Saturday Morning!

This is last weekend and week for ordering from your local farms and producers on the St Thomas Locally Grown Farmers Market.

Thanks for shopping local through this platform. We’ll see you Wednesday.

Going on Summer Break, Last week to order

Summer Vacation Time!

Dear Customer,

This is the last week of orders until the fall! Get in one more before the fall!

As the summer heat kicks in full force, the market is going on Summer Break! The market will be closed for July and August and will re-open again in September. Thanks so much for shopping locally using this online platform. The growers have enjoyed selling through it and will be back again in the fall. They’ll be able to use the time to plant and prepare for fall crops and production.

So, what does this mean for you for July and August?

How to stay in contact with your growers?
Many still have produce and products available. The Moringa Experience has a website you can order her items through. Some have Facebook group pages, etc. Some participate in the Farmers Market from Yacht Haven Grande that now meet the 1st and 3rd Sunday of the month right next to Market Square in downtown Charlotte Amalie.

When will the online market start back up again?
Not sure exact week but it will be in September, evolving around hurricane season. If September is very active, we’ll start back in October. Best way to stay in touch is through our emails and our Facebook page. We’ll email out again in late August with a better time estimate.

Thank you very much for shopping with us. We look forward to serving you again in the fall. Thanks for shopping local. Check out our Facebook page, and help spread the word that one of your favorite ways to buy local is through the online market! We’ll need your help in the fall to get word out again!
Have a great summer, stay hydrated, eat lots of mangoes, and we’ll see you in the fall.

Yours Truly,

St Thomas Locally Grown Farmers Market Team!!

Welcome new growers to the market!


The market is open!

Just a reminder, ordering is only enabled Saturdays to Tuesdays. You may have had the experience of trying to order and the cart feature not being there. That’s mostly because one may have tried ordering on a closed day. Make sure to place your order on open days.

Thanks for shopping on the online farmers market. The growers are happy to have another way to make their product/produce available for you and to make it easier for them to get it to you.

We hope you are enjoying the experience and continue to grow with us as we grow for you!

Summer Seasonal Shopping 2020


Hello from the market coordinators of the St. Thomas Locally Grown Farmers Market. Market is currently open for orders and closes on Tuesdays at 5 PM.

Welcome to the new growers that joined this week and to the new customers trying out the market for the first time. We aim to make this smooth and easy to buy local and seasonal from your local farms on the market.

Here’s what’s available this week.

May Market Days of 2020!


Hello all! Que Sera Farms, host farm of the St Thomas Locally Grown Online Farmers Market, here to check in with you.

Welcome to all the new members trying out the market for the first time this week!!

Thank you all for trying the market and shopping from the local farms that are joining. We have new growers every week and some of their feedback is great. They are really enjoying being able to use this platform to bring their produce to a wider St Thomas audience. They appreciated the earlier drop off time last so we’ll be keeping these hours as our summer hours.

A few of the farms participated in farmers markets over the weekend so they were able to just update their inventory for this Wednesday. Please do check the market site again and see if there is any new items that you would like.

For our pick up location, we are going to set up closer to the beach this week. We are still moving around a little to find the right shade spot for the market coordinators so be on the look out for a market tent this time on the beach to the right.

Market is open! Last week of April 2020
