There are dozens of items on sale in the market, including plenty of snacks (like Marcona Almonds) for the beach!

New Products Online
We've been expanding our online store, so we can help you out if you forget something when you leave the island. This Compass Rose Beach Blanket would make a great gift for you or a friend...

Also, the LETTUCE TURNIP THE BEET t-shirts are back in stock in all sizes! 
From the Garden Center!
Lantanas and Zinnias are both power annuals for summer - long blooming with strong growth make them excellent garden plants. Zinnias are perfect for cut flowers and try Lantana in a container for all-summer bloom!
It's time to fertilize your flowering plants -
we recommend
Neptunes Harvest  Organic Fish/Seaweed Blend
Flowers and foliage will be stronger and more colorful.
Blooms will be more plentiful, fragrant and longer lasting.
This all purpose organic fertilizer will really make a difference! 
Feed weekly (or when you remember) from now through the end of August to keep your flower gardens and containers blooming
and going strong!
