THE EASTER ORDER: This one is a toughie. None of us should be celebrating with large groups, so smaller portions are available to satisfy any festive time. The Easter order is arriving on Wednesday April 8th. The deadline for placing an order is Sunday April 5th at Midnight. To make your reservation or place an order, please do not hit reply, send a new e-mail to veggietrail@gmail.com so it does not get lost in the shuffle. If you do not receive confirmation of your order from us within 24 hours, please re-send. It might have gotten lost in cyber space. In this time of covid-19, we must declare that prices may change. There is some volatility in our food supply. We promise do provide the best value and products possible.
