R.I.P. Famous No-Name Farmstand

Chefpaulo | Nov 23, 2013 01:37 AM

For all of us who cherished the nameless farm stand on Smith Road in Lower Providence, we must say farewell. After 21 years of operation, the landlord was demanding such exorbitant rent that they closed up shop last week and removed their iconic flatbed trailers and lean-to annex. They will be relocating to a spot up near Perkiomen Airport but I can't see that as a convenience anymore. Many thanks for 21 years of good fresh produce; introducing me to honeylope melons and Cinderella pumpkins; and always having the first Silver Queen white corn of the season.
