Roadside vegetable stands can get elaborate

Get out and see America! Roadside vegetable stands are making a huge comeback. It’s early yet in North Carolina for home grown tomatoes and so some of this produce comes from our Southern states however this stand will proudly carry locally grown in the very near future.

This little/big stand is not far from my house and I’ve forever wanted to stop and take a look around. Glad I did–I got some homemade potato salad, cole slaw, and one of the best strawberry pies I’ve ever eaten.  Did ya’ll see the arts and crafts too? Get out and see America everyone! Folks like this are depending on us. The owners told me that they started with a table and little box where people could leave the money. It was an honor system. They soon progressed to what you see in the photos. Some of the success can be attributed to the food scares of eggs and other produce. It’s just better if you know where your food is grown.

This place has tons of character and located off a back country road. You’ve got to get off the interstate and explore America–to see sights like this.

  2. I love buying produce from roadside veggie stands. Very few are this fancy, although many have had a wide assortment of veggies, fruit and flowers. There is one here in Salem Oregon that I believe started as a roadside stand, but now is a full fledged store with fresh veggies, fruit, canned stuff, crafts and strawberry shortcake. We go there as often for the strawberry shortcake as we do for the veggies.
