Amuni Wood Fire Oven – Now Open

The newest business to join the Davis Islands Village is Amuni Wood Fire Oven.  If you hang around the Village you may have even see the huge wood fire oven that was installed a number of weeks back.  Amuni Wood Fired Oven focuses on offering  “all things you love about fresh natural ingredients with the Farm to Table concept, and transposes them into a delicious Artisan European pizza.”

Fantastic Halloween in the Village Turnout 2018!

his years Halloween in the Village was a huge success, with more families and dogs than ever before.
First, a big shout out to Jenn Fadal of Wag Natural Pet Market for creating and organizing this event each year.  This was the 10th Annual event and the number of participants continue to increase.
Second, a special thank you to PROforma for all of the fantastic goody bags with so much swag.  Five-hundred goody bags were passed out with tons of toys and treats for the kids. And thank you to Fountain Mediterranean who graciously welcomes all kids, parents and dogs to take over their stage and patio that day.
Third, this event would not have been possible without the continued sponsorship of Islands and off-Islands businesses.
