Veggie Island


IMG_1550This is your last weekend to get some Rockaway Taco before they close up for the season. But the good news for residents and off-season visitors is that the adjoining Veggie Island will remain open year-round.

The organic market offers smoothies, coffee, baked goods, and sandwiches, as well as fresh, locally sourced produce.  If you come down for some winter surfing, stop by the market at Beach 96th Street and Elizabeth and Elizabeth will be happy serve you.

Veggie Island joins a growing year-round foodie trend on the peninsula. The Fisherman’s Dog food truck, on the bay side at Beach 112th Street, successfully completed a Kickstarter campaign, and they are making improvements to their site.

In a community that lamented the closing of one of the worst Wendy’s on the planet, these year-round dining options are sorely needed, and gladly welcomed.
