Vineyard Haven, MA
Down Island Farm announced via social media today that it exceeded retail outlet distribution forecasts in 2013 by more than double. Initially, Heidi Feldman and Curtis Friedman forecast 10 Martha's Vineyard retailers would sell their 100% natural premium finish Martha's Vineyard Sea Salt but as of December 1, over 20 retailers are carrying either/both the 2.0 Hostess or the .4 oz Traveler.
The retailers offering MV Sea Salt are, by town:
Chilmark: Chilmark General Store*
Edgartown: Black Sheep*, Edgartown Fish, Hob Knob Inn, Katama General*, Not Your Sugar Mamas*, Port Supply*, Soigne
Menemsha: Menemsha Fish Market
Oak Bluffs: Secret Garden, Pear Tree Provisions, Slip Seventy-Seven*
Vineyard Haven: Not Your Sugar Mamas*, Juliska, Le Roux Gourmet, SBS, Cronig's Market, Tisbury Market, Madame Falgoux, Vineyard Holiday Store*

*Closed in winter.
Feldman and Friedman encourage Islanders to support local businesses and a local product by buying MV Sea Salt. For those those off-Island, or in "America" as Feldman and Friedman refer to the mainland, MV Sea Salt may be ordered and shipped, the deadline being December 19, 2013.
