La Huerta is a New Outlet for Fresh Fruits and Vegetables on Bonaire

Just before the close of 2007, a new store opened its doors on Kaya Grandi in Kralendijk.  La Huerta is a new source for fresh fruits and vegetables, including more exotic tropical fruits.

Managed by owner/operators Luciano and Juan Pablo, La Huerta offers tourists and residents high quality fruit and vegetables.  They receive weekly deliveries of fresh produce, and additionally, every two weeks they receive a shipment from Colombia which may include such exotic fruits and vegetables as the star fruit, baby bok choy, pitaya (cactus fruit, or sometimes called the apple cactus), or guava.  The store has become very popular during the past two months, and in many cases, their stock goes out the door as quickly as it comes in, so it pays to call ahead for information as to what they currently have in stock.

Both Luciano and Juan Pablo are very service-oriented, and try to take as much time as possible with the customers, explaining the different fruits and vegetables and how they can be used.  La Huerta is located in a bright, vegetable green building, just north of Kralendijk, at Kaya Grandi #81.  Their phone number is 717-3141.  (Source:  Bonaire Insider reporter)

Note Update September 1, 2008: We regret to inform that La Huerta had to close its doors.  Unfortunately, the freight costs of importing high quality fruits and vegetables became too high with the increasing fuel costs.  (Source:  Bonaire Insider reporter)
