Lettuce Be Happy at Saturday’s ARTfarm Stand!

A praying mantis is well camouflaged on a leaf of galangal at ARTfarm.

Can you spot the praying mantis on this galangal leaf? We found a whole bunch in the basil harvest this morning. These insects are highly beneficial and are perhaps the only insect with an articulated head.

Crazy tons of lettuce and fresh greens for Saturday’s stand coming up at ARTfarm! Start planning your fresh local Thanksgiving dinner with food grown mere fractions of miles from your home or restaurant kitchen!

We’ll have lettuce heads in festive holiday colors, frizeé endive, sweet mix, spicy mix, arugula and microgreens. Bunched cooking or juicing greens including kale, collards, chinese cabbage, baby bok choi and broccoli rabe. Herbs fresh cut the morning of: italian and thai basils, dill, garlic chives, lemongrass, holy basil.

For holiday gifts, we have zinnia flowers, homemade chocolates, local honey, crispy salty foccacia bread, fresh precut coconuts for sweet coconut water, native potted shade trees, and ARTfarm gift certificates.

If you’re planning a holiday event and need to order lots and lots (5+ bags) of salad mix or microgreens, call us a day or two before the farmstand at (340)514-4873 and we can prep a special order just for you.
