Vacationer Supported Agriculture (VSA) market is open!
We are excited to offer our summer guests a uniquely local experience again this year, an offering of fresh fruit and vegetables from hard-working farmers on the North Carolina coast.
The Vacationer Supported Agriculture (VSA) project (formally Vacation Vittles) offers beach vacationers a chance to reconnect with what they eat by providing fresh, healthy, locally grown food picked at the peak of freshness the day before your arrival.
VSA is a vacationer-supported agriculture program sponsored by Sunset Properties, People-First Tourism, NC State Extension, and Men and Women United for Youth and Families.
If you are interested in supporting local farmers and enjoying delicious fresh produce during your vacation, pre-purchase your VSA Produce Bag here. Your fresh, local selection will be available to pick up from a convenient location on the Saturday of your arrival. Produce bags and eggs will be picked up at Surf Unlimited on the island, and shrimp at Island Seafood Company on the mainland.
