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

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

A note about carabao’s milk:

Providing access to capability training  for women dairy farmers makes a huge difference in the quality as we have a much improved carabao’s milk! We are delighted to re-launch it on the 15th September with even better and creamier taste! UPLB’s intervention is such a big help.

Many thanks.

Cheers.
