Frequently asked questions

Can you add _ _ _ _ _ for pickup/delivery?

Most of our inventory will soon be available for pickup and delivery. The exception is perhaps some items in glass. Special requests are a little difficult right now, so please stay tuned for updates in our newsletter and on Facebook!

Do you deliver to _ _ _ _ _ ?

Our regular delivery area falls within Sarasota, Lakewood Ranch, and Bradenton. Your address must be in mainland Sarasota (not the keys), West of Lorraine Rd (which is near I-75), North of Clark Rd, and South of State Rd 70. If you live outside this zone, we recommend that you arrange a group pick-up to your area by joining together with friends and family. Simply place multiple pick-up orders on the same day (cost is only $5 each, or $10 for orders over $100), and have one person pick up the group's orders.

How does home delivery work?

We're now offering deliveries Mondays and Tuesdays. Orders must be placed the day before to be delivered next day between 8:00am - 12:00pm. Your driver will txt you when they are 15 minutes away, and once the produce has arrived. No direct contact necessary. Deliveries are limited to a specific delivery zone. The standard delivery fee is $15. Orders over $100 incur an additional $5 boxing fee. Orders over $300 incur an addional $10 fee. Orders over $400 incur an addional $15 fee. Orders over $700 incur an addional $20 fee. If you require delivery and are unable to pay due to hardship, please call 941-363-1586 and press 3.

How does pickup work?

We're offering pickup orders Mondays and Tuesdays. Orders must be placed the night before to be ready 8AM next day. You can come a little later, especially in cooler weather, but we set orders outside at 8AM. They are put back in the cooler by 11AM. The earlier you come, the fresher your produce will be. You don't have to interact with anyone, just bring your order number and grab the right one. The normal pickup fee is $5. Orders $100+ incur an addtional boxing fee for a total of $10. Orders $300+ incur an addtional boxing fee for a total of $15. Orders $400+ incur an addtional boxing fee for a total of $20. Orders $700+ incur an addtional boxing fee for a total of $25. The reason we have to charge boxing fees is because it takes our staff quite a bit of time and effort to pack these orders. If you are unable to pay due to hardship, please contact 941-363-1586 and press 3.

I like to shop in person. Are you still open?

Yes! Fri: 8am - 6pm | Sat: 8am - 5pm | Sun: 8am - 5pm | Less crowded after 3pm :) 4180 47th St, Sarasota FL 34235 | View on Google Maps

Can I place a pickup or delivery order over the phone?

We encourage you to order online but if you need help placing an order, please call 941-363-1586 and select Option 2 for technical help.

What is your mask policy?

We strongly recommend all Jessica's customers to wear some kind of mask. All of our cashiers will be wearing face coverings, however we do not have a security staff, and simply don't have the resources to police our customers. Pickup and delivery options remain available for those at higher risk, or who have additional concerns about shopping in person. These contactless shopping options were launched precisely for the safety our customers. Our online store is open Sunday night through Monday night, for next day pickup or delivery.

Where can I learn how to farm and garden?

Check out Beaucoop Farm for local workshops. They use our starter plants :-)
