a favorite market: Friday Fence Post

Pipkin's Market
Here is a small fenced-in area next to the right side of the building.  A few herbs and flowers grow here.  In season, lovely pots as well as garden ornaments are for sale in this space.
Pipkins began in the 1980s as a small roadside stand, selling in-season vegetables and fruits in the Summer.  Eventually, the stand was enclosed in a building, and the business began to operate year 'round.  All produce is hand picked, fresh, and delicious.  Most produce comes from local growers within a 100 mile radius.  The market also sells local specialty items such as breads, salsas, and gelato.  And, oh, the most wonderful apple cider!
Later, a garden area was added.  (It is located on the property across the parking lot from the building.)  Such a    wonderful variety of plants--annuals and perennials--one can find!

  12. Wonderful fence. There used to be a nursery like this that I would escape to when I lived in Houston. It is amazing how that little fence is part of the ambiance of a place.

  13. I wish we had a store like that. We do have a farmers market though. I loved the first photo.

  14. markets that support the community are wonderful to shop at for so many reasons - that ones sounds especially FAB!
