Welcome to the St Thomas Locally Grown Online Farmers Market.

the Online Farmers Market is open!

We are back open this December 2022! First let us say we are so grateful to you for shopping local! We love growing for our communities as much as we love eating some good local produce!

December is a great time to reflect on our farmers market year! We’ve loved selling in our Frenchtown pick up location. We have many producers and customers that were new this year! And the produce was beautiful and delicious!

Many got to meet local producers and try new ingredients. Farmers tried new crops. It was a good food year! We aim to make 2023 even better. So we hope you stay plugged into local produce with us as we grow!

We have a few updates for you this season! This December we are doing a little test run of a Farmers Market Subscription Box and we would like to see if you are up for it! We are also switching our online ordering software to a different platform, https://queserafarms.eatfromfarms.com.

What is it?

A bi-weekly Farmer’s Market Subscription Box for the month of December, paid for in full upfront. The box includes seasonally available produce including microgreens, arugula, bush tea, seasoning greens and other available fruits and vegetables.

You will receive a farmers market box twice this month, on the second and 4th Thursday of the Month, December 8th and the 22nd. There are 2 sizes, one for large households and one that is a half share, good for smaller households.

How do I order?

Create a Que Sera Farms account at https://queserafarms.eatfromfarms.com. Go to “Account” on the right hand corner of the webpage and click “Create Account.” You will receive an email with a link to confirm your account. Once you are in go to “Product Bundles” and click on either the full or the half option for your December Subscription.

You will also have the option to add additional items from our inventory under “All Products” to your order! You can pay via Venmo to Shelli Brin @queserafarms or you can pay with cash or check at the market pick up.

Ordering will be open on the new website this evening and will close at 6pm on December 7th so make sure to place your order before then!

How do I pick it up?

On the second and fourth Thursday of the month at the Frenchtown Fish Market between 3:30 and 5:45. Text (340) 643-2298 for any scheduling conflicts and we will try to accommodate you as best we can!

Where: French Town Fish Market
When: December 8, 3:30-5:45
December 22, 3:30-5:45

We are really excited to try out this subscription model and we appreciate your support in taking on this experiment with us. This is a mini version of a Community Supported Agriculture program. When Farmers and Market Coordinators get orders and payments ahead of time it helps us plan and fund our day to day operations which, down the line, can lead to increased affordability and availability of local crops to customers while still increasing viability and profitability for local producers.

We are excited to see how much demand there is so that we can increase our production and encourage other producers too. So for our growers, we really do hope you give this subscription box a try this month!

Subscription boxes can also be a culinary adventure, opening up so many more opportunities to teach consumers how to eat local ingredients and integrate them better into their meals. It gives producers a chance to introduce items they wouldn’t normally try because local varieties vary from stateside ones. If you need tips on how to use certain items keep an eye on your inbox for recipes or simply ask us how we cook with these items at home.

What should my next steps be after this email?
Sign up for a Que Sera Farms account on https://queserafarms.eatfromfarms.com
and then sign up for a December Subscription Box. Make a note on payment of choice. And then we’ll see you December 8th, between 3p-6p in Frenchtown again! We can’t wait to see you again!!

Yours Truly,
- Your St Thomas Online Farmers Market Coordinators
