Looking for simple farm stand on the side of the road

Rheta | Aug 15, 2011 06:02 PM

Hi all. This question has been a long time coming. Prompted tonight by a thread about Jenny's farm stand in Dexter. It was said "it's not just a wagon along side the road". Well that is what I'm looking for. Here in southeast Michigan the farmers markets are abundunt and wonderful. But even more wonderful are the little farm stands along the rural roads(like we had in suburban Philly and Minneapolis). They were mostly on the honor system(leave your money in a box) for beautiful corn, tomatoes, cukes, peppers and the like. These were nearby daily, not just weekly(even though farmsers markets can be found almost every day of the week if you travel some). I just wish there was a little stand I could visit every couple of days for fresh, very local produce for very little cash. Thanks!
