The Village Green
The Village Green is a unique greenhouse/retail store combination set in the small village of Foxboro - just 5 minutes north of the 401 at the Belleville interchange. The principles of local and organic are evident in the selection of items for sale year round.
Organically grown seeds from the Terra Edibles seed company, certified organic tomato seedlings (in season) can be found as well as locally-produced lavender products, marinades and meats (beef, chicken, pork and lamb).
There is always a good selection of fair trade coffees, teas, essential oils, bath products, books, kitchenware and garden amendments.
For the local farmers, we carry an organic line of chicken and turkey feed as well as kelp fertilizers and diatomaceous earth. Even the beeswax candles and the gardeners' hand creams are environmentally good choices.....well worth the trip to Foxboro.
