Weston A. Price Foundation (WAPF)

Weston A. Price Chapter in St. Petersburg, Florida  – WAP St Pete

Welcome. As the Chapter Leader for WAP in St. Pete, my goal is to build and connect community between; local, sustainable small farmers and the rest of us as consumers who want to eat well. We are looking forward to resuming meetings where we each share information and sometimes support a local vendor.

REMEMBER: If you are moving to the Free State of Florida, please know that Gov. DeSantis has worked hard to keep us thriving and no one is Locking Down our businesses. Welcome to our state and we hope you help us keep our freedoms and support our great Governor and House Members who protect our freedom.

Our family has traveled to meet and experience each of the venues and farms we recommend. These farmers and retailers enrich our lives and we support them; no one asked or paid us. Our hope is to take care of the earth and our bodies that God has given us.

Below are the resources we recommend. Please share if you know of more farms and venues in the St. Petersburg area.

    Do these same local farm food supply the Largo and Clearwater markets too, or are they different?
    Thank you so much!

    1. I’m not sure, Debi. You could call and ask them. It would be nice if they did, but St Pete is such a large market they may just keep it here.
