East West Catering and Mer Et Soleil. I found her through a magazine article in St. John Magazine, right when I had just about given up on finding any local food scene on the small island. Julie enthusiastically led me to Coral Bay Organic Gardens...and let me tell you, it was worth the hunt!
(okra)New England gardeners and farmers would be jealous to know that on St. John's they enjoy a growing season that lasts 365 days a year!
(loofah, when dried and peeled, this is what we use to scrub away in the shower- too cool!)The farm supplies organic produce to hotels, restaurants and private chefs on both St. John's and the neighboring St. Thomas. With the productivity of the land, it is no wonder that they are able to provide such volume. The small farmstand on site featured a fridge packed full with interesting greens and aromatic herbs. My mom and I both agreed that it made us crave a big ole' flavorful salad right then and there.
