Detailed information about WB Vacation Veggies produce bag

Vacation Veggies sells beach vacationers at Wrightsville Beach one or more produce bags filled with local food grown and harvested by farmers located in New Hanover, Pender, and Sampson counties, North Carolina.

We work with local youth organizations to fill the produce bags, while teaching them about safe produce handling. We deliver the Vacation Veggies Produce Bags on Saturday of each week. To pick up your Vacation Veggies bag(s), go to New Hanover County Arboretum .

Each Vacation Veggies Produce Bag will be filled with a variety of produce picked at the peak of freshness by area farmers, then packed and delivered the following day for easy customer pickup the day they arrive in Wrightsville Beach. Each bag will contain enough fresh produce to feed a family of four at least three servings of fruit and vegetables for the week (about 12 servings total).

This project is driven by the success of farmers, and creating new revenue streams for local food producers and entrepreneurs. At this time we do not offer refunds, farmers partnered with this project are committed to offering a replacement for any produce bag deemed unsatisfactory. Additionally, to ensure the product is delivered at the peak of freshness any bag(s) not claimed by Sunday at 12pm will be donated to a local food pantry. Partnering with food pantries offers vulnerable citizens access to affordable fresh food.
