Summer tomatoesAt Rudy’s Happy Patch Market, our two most popular “brands” of produce are Chase corn and Buchanan tomatoes. Chase Farms in nearby Oglethorpe, Georgia, grows the most delectable corn available, and customers flock to the market during fresh corn season.

Buchanan tomatoes are grown by Jim Buchanan of Sumter County’s Buchanan Farms. During the summer, in particular, Buchanan tomatoes can be spotted on many a table or tucked in a sandwich with a healthy dollop of Duke’s mayo. (If you don’t know what we’re talking about, then you’re not from around here!)

Perry Wellness Center founder and CEO Stuart Perry appreciates both partnerships. “We are happy that we can offer products from many local farm providers,” he says. “Customers have made Chase corn and Buchanan tomatoes some of the top selling brands at Happy Patch. Mrs. Chase selected our market as the only market outlet for their corn. We are happy to be partnered with these two local farm providers.”

In the photo above, customers are welcomed with tables of red, ripe Buchanan tomatoes as they pass through the south entry of Rudy’s Happy Patch Market.
