Eat Fresh and Shop Local in the Wellington Area

Did you know that locally sourced produce not only tastes delicious, but is better for you and the environment? When you use produce that’s grown close to home, there’s less time from the moment it’s picked to when it’s on your plate – giving you fresher, tastier, more nutritious food that leaves a smaller carbon footprint on the planet. With benefits like that, it only makes sense to shop local! Thankfully, the area surrounding Arden offers plenty of options to get locally sourced goods, so you’re sure to find a favorite to visit regularly.

  1. Arden
    You can’t get more local than produce that’s grown practically in your backyard! Arden’s five-acre working farm is managed by our Farm Directors, and provides residents with regular shares of produce that varies with the season. Plus, the on-site General Store offers surplus produce from the farm, locally sourced produce, honey and snacks.

    Open year-round to Arden residents
    660 Arden Lake Way, Wellington, FL 33470

  2. Caribbean Plants and Produce
    This location might look more like a plant nursery, but looks can be deceiving! This produce stand often has hard-to-find produce like jackfruit, sugar apples, longan fruit and annonas. Plus, while you’re here you might find a new air-purifying houseplant to take home, or an exotic fruit tree.
