Farm Stands & Farmers Markets
If a green roadside flag is flying, the farm stand is open!
Flocks of heritage hens, pastured farm animals, permaculture gardens, and wild harvesting are all common here.
Farmers markets generally run from May to October. A popular local attraction steeped in the unique island vibe is the Saturday Farmers Market. Local food is also available at the Mid-Week Market and Silva Bay Market.
