A few years ago, a local couple had an idea inspired by a Louisiana produce market. Seeing an abandoned BP gas station at the corner of Hwy 5 and Central Church Rd they decided to replicate what they saw, albeit smaller. They set up shop there selling farmer fresh fruits, vegetables, seeds, locally produced honey, homemade soups, gift baskets, fresh preserves and jellies, and the ever popular Snoball stand where the old car wash building was where visitors on hot summer days could cool off with shaved ice and over 35 flavors to choose from. Since the opening, the place has boomed season after season, so much so that the time has come for an expansion and an updated look. Beginning a few weeks ago at the end of July The Farmer’s Table began an expansion and renovation. The goal is to connect the two buildings on the property, the main store and the Snoball stand, as well as remove the old gas station overhead awning as well as improvements to the parking lot. From the Facebook page, they advise patrons park on the Central Church side as construction continues and add that for the time being there will be some parking issues. The Farmer’s Table embodies the mantra of Locally owned and we at The Douglasville Menu can not wait to see the final results. We will have them for you here when they are complete.
Take a look at their website to see what they sell and see what you have been missing out on.
