Welcome to the Rype & Readi Blog!

Rype & Readi is a 22-acre farm-to-fork marketplace offering food, fun, and a fresh source for premium, local farm fare at an affordable price. Creating a community of related agribusinesses, our products are grown right here at home: in Rype & Readi gardens and at neighboring farms. More than a market, Rype & Readi is a family-friendly St. Johns County destination for families, chefs, farmers, and people that just love to eat local foods. Stop by the Rype & Readi Farm Market today – there’s always something to see, do, and taste!

Our premium fair includes fresh organic produce including garden vegetables: hydroponic lettuce & herbs, mushrooms, blueberries, blackberries, strawberries, peaches, and more. Working with local neighboring farms, we offer an expanded line of products and provide a convenient market place to find local favorites with ingredients to enhance them.

Our farm is set up to accommodate school groups (teachers, please ask about our fractional share lesson plans and field trips), cooking classes, farm feasts, catered events, Zen zones for private gatherings, and even a petting zoo. On opening day we were blessed with birth of two baby goats! Born to pigmy parents Baileys & Cream, visitors helped name our adorable twins Kahlua and Gomez!

Partnering with some of the best chefs, restaurateurs, farmers, and agricultural groups in our area, our blog will feature information about everything Farm-to-Fork we think you would find interesting. We encourage you to comment and participate in this blog! Please check back regularly and let us know if there are any topics or events that may interest you. Let us know what you think and what farm fare you’d like to see at Rype & Readi. And please support the other local farms and restaurants in St. Johns County. Together, we can make St. Johns County a farm-to-fork leader in premium, quality food and healthy living.

Dear Friends, Family and Valued Patrons of Rype & Readi

As we close 2018 and look forward to our 5th year, we once again welcome and will be challenged by change.

 

As many of you know, we took a calculated risk in opening at the Colee Stables downtown.
Property ownership had been disputed and litigated for the last 9 years. Finally resolved, we were regrettably unable to come to reasonable terms with the new owner and our lease ends on the 31st of December. This was complicated in part by a commitment we had made to expand our market operations downtown beginning next fall, adjacent to a well known, well trafficked anchor.
Rest assured Rype & Readi will have a downtown presence again. But for the immediate near term, we are consolidating operation to our St. John’s Golf Club facility where we will focus on catering, prepared foods, dinner events, cooking classes and, of course, a market for fresh local fine foods.
Please be sure to keep in contact with our social media on Facebook, Instagram, our website & newsletter to follow our happenings and special offerings.
Our location at the St. John’s Golf Club is a diamond in the rough. In addition to having a full restaurant and bar, we have a magnificent patio overlooking acres of manicured greens, gorgeous in the daylight and tranquil in the evenings when the golfer’s day is done.
With plenty of space on the terrace and adjacent properties (including parking for several hundred cars) this venue, at the intersection of State Road 207 and I-95 promises to host some creative, exciting and delightful family events throughout the coming year.
We fondly wish you all a festive and memorable holiday season and thank you for your continued support. Please let us know if there is any event, occasion or opportunity to help you celebrate life though a special event with great food and smiling faces.
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year
With Profound Appreciation,
Your friends at Rype & Readi
