Don't Forget Your Veggies! Clemmons Produce in Banner Elk, NC

Just back from stocking up Beech Mountain Bliss with fresh fruits and veggies for the family as we enjoy our Summer escape from the sweltering heat down below. Less than a 20-minute drive from us, on Tynecastle Highway leading out of Banner Elk, Clemmons is a great place to pick up some local produce, as well as good-quality specimens from much further away (since the modern lifestyle we live has gotten us used to having our pineapples, avocados and lemons whenever we desire them). But today I was particularly pleased to pick up a couple of pounds of heirloom tomatoes!

In addition to the fresh stuff, there is plenty of old-fashioned candy, jars of delicious preserves and local honey (If you haven't tried Sourwood honey, you can count yourself as deprived.), as well as amusing "hillbilly" nick-nacks to take back home with you.
