For the Foodie

Martha’s Vineyard Sea Salt from $5
With multiple sizes and tastes to choose from who wouldn’t enjoy adding this to their meals every day?
MVM Berber Spiced Wild Harvest Shiitake $25
I’ve got to let you in on a secret. I don’t like mushrooms. I avoid them often as much as possible. However, when I’m at a food tasting event, such as Fresh Off The Farm, I’m willing to give things a little nibble. Because, as I used to say when I was a kid, “Maybe my taste buds will grow up” and I’ll eventually like them. This was the case with MVM’s Berber Spiced Wild Shiitakes Mushrooms. I really enjoyed the spice to them.
Martha’s Vineyard Nuts $11.50
Made with Sweet, Spicy and Savory ingredients, these Island roasted whole nuts will provide energy all day long… that is until the bag runs out.

I first discovered this brand the year they launched in 2015. They had one goal in mind to make a pair of sunglasses from ocean plastic and plant based materials. Man did they succeed!
