Exploring the fresh and local finds at the Saturday morning Farmer's Market at the STR Agriculture Farm!

Updated: Jun 22

Aruba holds a treasure trove of delights, and one gem we stumbled upon thanks to some fellow travelers, is the captivating farmer’s market at STR Agriculture Farm in Alto Vista. Nestled just a stone's throw away from the hotel area of Palm and Eagle Beach, this market is a must-visit, especially if you've got wheels at your disposal!



Every Saturday morning from 8 am to 12 pm, the STR Agriculture Farm bursts into life with a vibrant display of fresh produce. Picture-perfect watermelons, plump tomatoes, fiery hot peppers, crisp cucumbers, and succulent green beans are just a taste of the bounty awaiting you.


But the real magic lies in the bustling array of local vendors offering delectable treats. Imagine sipping on a cool, refreshing lemonade infused with strawberry or blue raspberry, adorned with fresh fruit—courtesy of Dr. Green Veggies. Trust me, it's the ultimate remedy for Aruba's sun-soaked mornings.



And then there's T2Pan Sourdough, a sensation in its own right. Despite the lengthy queues (yes, they're that good), their warm-from-the-oven sourdough loaves and sweet treats are worth every minute of the wait. Be sure to scout out their Instagram menu beforehand to whet your appetite.  Plus, keep an eye out for their upcoming storefront—a testament to their growing popularity!


Parking is a breeze, with ample space within the farm gates or along the roadside when things get bustling.  Be sure to bring cash with you, Florins or USD. Credit Cards/Venmo is only accepted with some vendors.


So, mark your calendar, rev up your appetite, and join me in exploring the flavors of Aruba at the STR Agriculture Farm—it's an experience you won't soon forget!

UPDATE AS OF JUNE 22, 2024!


Exciting changes are happening at the farmers market!


While T2 Pan Sourdough is taking a break from the market, you can still indulge in their delicious breads. They’ve opened a new storefront, now available five days a week! Stay tuned for a detailed blog post about their new location. In the meantime, you can find them across from the Divi Golf Course, next to the bright pink Casiola office – you can’t miss it!

In other news, Dr. Green Veggies and his adorable family have introduced some fantastic new treats! They now offer refreshing Passion Fruit and Cherry Limeade drinks. Fun fact: Did you know passion fruits are hollow inside? I didn’t either – so fascinating!


But that’s not all! They’ve also added mini pancakes to their menu, and they are absolutely delicious! I was lucky enough to be the first to try them this morning. You can enjoy these delightful pancakes topped with powdered sugar or syrup and you can add almonds too! We chose powdered sugar and enjoyed them on our way to the beach, paired perfectly with our fresh drinks. Yum!
