If it’s autumn, it must be mums! Rudy’s Happy Patch Market has become the go-to place for colorful fall mums. The market maintains a list of area farmers and other providers that keep his inventory filled.
“Mums have become a great staple for our fall market,” says Perry Wellness Center founder and CEO Stuart Perry. “Our theme at the market is, ‘customers leave with a smile.’ I want people to visit, buy mums, and display them to welcome fall. I am sure they will leave with a smile!”
To further encourage customers, groups of mums are displayed at the entrances to the campus, marked with signs reading, “Buy 5 and get one FREE!”
On one recent day, staff members Stephen Thompson and Jamie Minich worked with volunteer peers Sean, Kaylon, and Chambliss to place newly delivered mums at the market.
