Lovely to meet you at the Mercato Day

Hello,

It was lovely to see our subscriber-friends, neighbours and new faces at the Mercato in Lexington.  And also to our friends who came from afar and braved the rain to see us, it was wonderful and we are incredibly grateful!  We hope the warm choco rice drink and the taco and tortilla with hot sauce and salsa provided relief and comfort.

To those who enquired about our range of leafy veg, salad greens and meat products and other items, you will know what’s available by checking our site and our weekly email and text blast about our harvest offerings each week.  You may also contact us at 0927 675 5199/villagegreenshop@btinternet.com.  And to those who enquired about our range of dairy, we have probiotic, carabao’s milk (plain and choco), mozarella, chevre and improved kesong puti.  If you want any of these items this weekend or week after week you may subscribe or place your order until Tuesday, 12:00nn. Also if there’s anything you particularly like or not or you are looking for items you would want included in our product range please give us a shout anytime!

We are surprised as some of you are that they can get easy access of a range of sustainably grown produce right within this village.  We are happy to serve you and it’s just so happen that we live around here and so we thought our campaign for healthy food starts at “home”.

Last note,  to those who asked us when and how they can get their weekly food basket, please check out our market days below:

Delivery days

Pre-order 11:00 nn cut off
Monday Saturday
Thursday Wednesday
Saturday/Sunday Wednesday

 

 

 

And finally, we are happy that you bought products from a social enterprise we are supporting called Custom Home – they are expert-makers of curtains, seat covers, throw pillows, drapes and bedding (duvet covers, bed skirts and throws) including all kinds of canvass bags and backpacks. They are worth supporting because not only that they offer honest to goodness work at reasonable price but would like to showcase their talent by setting up their own small business to move away from subsistence living to hopefully a sustainable life. If you are looking to have new curtains or do makeover this Christmas, please keep Custom Home in your radar.  You may contact 0926 739 4997 for enquiries.

Many thanks.

Cheers,

TheVillageGreenShop Team

Pure milk

20130906_210658

We are delighted with the brand new look of our carabao’s milk but more than that it’s the quality, pureness and nutrition sealed in this new package design.  It comes in handy and easy-to-store food grade plastic container and tamper proof caps to ensure freshness and wholeness of the  milk.

Last week we gave away free samples to parents and children and we are glad they love the taste and longer shelf life.  Many thanks to those who sent their excellent feedback!

For those who enquired for extra bottles, you can place your order until Tuesday, that’s tomorrow, cut off is 12:00 nn so you can pick it up on the 15th September!  You may contact us at 0927 675 5199/villagegreenshop@btinternet.com if you would like to try first or subscribe.

Many thanks.

A note about carabao’s milk:

Many thanks.

Cheers.
