Big Announcement: Love City Fresh Farm & Picnic Opening Thanksgiving 2020

There is a very exciting announcement regarding the property above Colombo Smoothies on Centerline Road!

The name of the property is Love City Fresh Farm & Picnic. The basics of the property is that it is farm, picnic area, with food truck on site.

There was a launch video posted to the Facebook Page that you should see after reading this post.  But first check out the pictures of the property.

The best part is definitely the views, especially at sunset, as seen above.

You can see Maho Bay from one side of the property and Coral Bay from the other side.

One of the unique features of the property is that after you purchase your produce from the food truck you may use one of the onsite BBQ Grill tables to heat your kabobs to your preferred temperature in the picnic area.

  1. This will be amazing…. so happy someone is doing this! Very much needed, and I have always wanted to be a part of something like this on island…. maybe when I retire from teaching I can do this!

  2. I knew it would not be long before someone else saw the opportunity these hydroponic farming containers have, especially in the USVI.

    This is great news for everyone I believe. I wish you the greatest success and can’t wait to be able to come back for a visit!!!

    • Is this spot on the former Chateau Bordeaux property?
      I noticed after hiking St. John there’s lots of deer, wild chicken, cows, sheep, donkey and pigs. It would be nice if this restaurant could source all the meat locally. The environmental impact of importing food is very high. Also, does anyone know if they will have have daily specials like Taco Tuesday or Meatless Monday. What about drink specials? 2 for 1 shots on weekend nights?

  3. Interesting.

    We love Hog Heaven on VG which has similar views and setting.

    I could see stopping for drinks but that style of cook your own food at a restaurant isn’t for me. My husband, who hasn’t cooked a meal in 20+ years, says he would like it, meaning he would like it if I cooked his lunch
