Market Garden Sale

Every Thursday, 10am to 2pm through May 7 2020

Although the main property is temporarily closed, it is our pleasure to continue to share the bounty of our on-site organic garden with the community through an "in and out" organic produce market on Thursdays from 10am to 2pm at the nearby Circle C Farm Store next to our property @ 10441 Kentucky St., Bonita Springs, Florida 34135.

Shoppers will have the option of selecting bundles of a variety of fresh organic produce priced from $3 to $5. Limited quantities of bags with a mix of leafy greens and vegetables will be available for drive-up purchases for $10 to $15 each. Due to limitations of internet connection, sales will be cash only. Items available will be listed on the Shangri-La Springs Facebook page each Wednesday.

In order to keep shoppers and staff safe, only three people at a time will be allowed in the market tent, and others will be required to wait in their car or stand in a line 6 feet apart. Only a staff member will touch the produce and will use hand sanitizer before and after each customer. Shoppers are encouraged to bring their own bags in order to minimize contact.

Produce will be sourced from the certified organic garden, which usually provides produce for the restaurant. The sale will be held rain or shine and limited quantities will be available while supplies last.

If conditions allow, the plan is to sell fresh produce every Thursday through May 7, but please call 239-949-0749 to confirm.
