|Como Green Grocer|
Obviously market conditions led to less of a need for land surveyors so he retired and opened a market in a town without a grocery store. They have been open a month and are reported to have some tasty Clementines, but I sure wish my Daddy could taste these blackberries.
We talk of a trip they took to Italy and the fresh markets they found, how they are trying to encourage patrons to do their daily shopping here. It is a beautiful place stocked with muscadine juice, locally canned vegetables and stone ground grits and corn meal. I find out that Mississippi has the only remaining Amish community in the deep south, and there is a gentleman there who weaves baskets which you can buy in this store.
With gratitude, of course.
