Having recently stocked up on spring flowers, trees, and shrubs for home garden planning, Rudy’s Happy Patch Market has now turned attention to fresh produce from farms and other venues throughout South Georgia and the Perry Wellness Center campus.
Recently, market manager Kelly Jansen ventured to some South Georgia garden markets and returned with a truckload of produce, including seeded watermelon and five varieties of peas.
Kelly notes, “We offer pink eye, purple, crème 9, zipper peas, and butterbeans.”
Seeded watermelons are available for $7 each, and peas are being processed. Upon arrival at Happy Patch, the peas and beans were hastily transferred into waiting chest refrigerators, and watermelons are arranged to prevent rolling and melon – or other – damage.
“It is hot,” Kelly says, “But we are offering all available produce to our customers.”
