Do you ever find yourself wondering where the food you’re eating comes from? How many miles it has traveled? How long it has been frozen and what did they put in it so it would last that long? The Veggie Wagon Island Market in Carolina Beach is giving the community convenient access to an abundance of great foods directly from local North Carolina farms. Their concept is simple; provide the area with access to the wealth of wonderful foods and products that are fresh, local, and delicious. “Local produce has gained popularity over the last few years and trying to consume it when it is season, is not a new concept. Many years ago this was the only way to eat; locally available foods were it! Over time this has drastically changed and produce is now picked green and transported many many miles. Our goal is to provide a diverse selection of fresh, healthy and unbelievably tasty local North Carolina fruits, veggies, and additional homemade products, while at the same time supporting local farming families. Since we are purchasing North Carolina products, we do not have to travel very far to provide you with our items, so your family will have fruits and veggies ripened naturally by Mother Nature rather than chemicals.”
At the Veggie Wagon you will of course find a plethora of locally grown veggies like corn, cucumbers, radishes, squash, tomatoes, peppers and much more. You will also find an abundance of meats and other specialty products like local sauces, jams, jellies, seasonings, honey, pickled products and more. They have recently added some new items and stands to their assortment so if it has been awhile since your last visit to the Veggie Wagon stop by soon to see what is new! In addition to the local meats they have in stock they also carry a selection of Boar’s Head brand meats and cheeses. The Veggie Wagon is strict about quality and only the very best products are available which is why they are happy to provide the well-known Boar’s Head brand to their customers.
The Veggie Wagon carries a nice assortment of fine wines and micro brew beers. Come in and enjoy their comfortable sitting area with friends during one of their weekly wine or beer tasting events!
