Proof that you never really know what kind of magic can happen when you actually take someone up on sharing those fries after all and start a conversation about your passion...😉 So glad you visited us that time, Town Farm Tonics!

(Thank you East Bay Newspapers for showing so much love to our members all year long)

(Thank you East Bay Newspapers for showing so much love to our members all year long)“Cultivating health and resilience should be easy, enjoyable, and accessible for the average person. That’s what brought me to herbalism in the first place: the ability to care for yourself and others is an act of empowerment.” 🌿
.
So excited to see that Town Farm Tonics was featured in the Westport Shorelines (and related local papers)this week! 🙈 It’s an honor to represent for the countless hardworking herbalists out there who see a better way of wellness + healing that collaborates once again with our plant allies. Herbalism is a part of each one of us, whether or not we’re aware of it just yet. And working with plants each day to build long term health is accessible to us all.
.
Seeing herbalism talked about as just another part of life gives me hope for the future, that we can regain balance in our healthcare system. It starts in the home. It’s starts with me + you 👏🏽🌿

FRIENDS! We just launched a podcast! We've been missing you all so much while we're not having markets and wanted to find a way to stay connected with you. Please listen, subscribe and share!

The first episode of the Make Food Your Business Podcast is a conversation with Lisa Raiola (our Founder & fearless leader) and Anat Sagi (founder of The Mosaic Table). We talk about "why does local food cost so much?", and try to explain the many ways our dollars impact the food system....we hope you love it! Next episode drops on March 12!
