The Ostrich Farm organizes the monthly local farmers market.
The farmers market's goal is to promote products and artwork made and produced in Aruba.
More and more local farmers are actively growing vegetables, fruits, farming animals such as chicken and pigs and selling them to the public. You have locals that make their own wine and liqueur, like Mondi Fierno, or Sandra Kelkboom who makes vegetarian delicacy from locally grown beans known as “wilde roos” or "D’abaru", or Nonna who makes her own pica de jello (hot sauce). Others grow local plants and fruit trees and make natural herbal teas and medicine.
Additionally, we have very talented Artisans on the island that create incredible beautiful art and souvenirs. A nice art piece as decoration for your home or to take as a souvenir back to your home country or as a gift! It is unique and one of a kind. We invite the Aruban artisans to the farmers market as well. They are known for working with different materials and techniques such as recycled products, glass blowing, and jewelry making. Some even make their own cosmetic products such as organic soap and cream like Bath and Body from Jacky Geerman. Naomi Landgraf who makes beautiful small original cunucu houses. Freddy Noord who makes everything from used car tires like flower pots and animal statues. Lorraine Evans with her hand-painted linen bags, aprons, and towels.
With the organization of the farmers market, the Ostrich Farm wants to help support the local farmers and Artisans with the opportunity to present and sell their product directly to the public and create awareness of product produced and made in Aruba. This a monthly event. Aside from the farmers market, kids can join a free tour around the farm and meet the largest bird in the world, the Ostrich. For those interested, we even serve an Ostrich omelet when in season.
