Nathan's Natural Veggies
Welcome to Nathan’s Natural Veggies. Here you will find fresh, chemical-free vegetables grown with great care! And now you can order them online. The Levy’s cater to all customers including those who purchase in small quantities for single and small families. We also welcome co-op purchases. We make all attempts to beat local retailer pricing.
Our urban garden is located in our backyard and is organically fed with horse manure we get in Pinellas County. We raise our own red wrigglers and use worm castings on seedlings and new plantings. Our soil has been built up over the past three to four years and our production continues to improve every season. We use NO pesticides, NO chemicals of any kind in our garden.
We love what we do and it is reflected in the park-like setting in which we grow. Unlike a farm, our backyard has remained non-commercial looking and our production area is more a work of art than a garden. Nathan’s “artwork” is bursting at the seams!
We do not require minimum purchases. And, in case you are wondering, we do grow and sell produce even in the hottest months of the year.
Nathan’s Natural Veggies Garden has been selected as a demo garden by Tampa Bay Living Green.
In addition, our Market business StPete.LocallyGrown.Net has been TBLG Certified Green by Tampa Bay Living Green.

Do you have a few hours to spare one day a week? Prior experience not required. We’ll teach you what you need to know and you can transfer what you learn to your own garden! Here are some opportunities to learn and to support The Garden and The Market.
- Everyday of the week, we need help with weeding, transplanting, composting, and planting.
- Thursdays, we need help weighing and packaging produce
- Fridays, we need help harvesting in the early morning.
