Mobile Market truckIn the last Perry Wellness Center blog post, we told readers about the kick-off of the spring/ summer Mobile Market season in downtown Buena Vista. We promised more insight into PWC founder and CEO Stuart Perry’s feelings about the day and personal notes about the visit. 

First, a reminder to readers that Buena Vista, in rural Marion County, Georgia, was Stuart’s boyhood home. He first discovered his love for gardening and plants when he helped out in the family greenhouse, where plants were grown for later sale at his father’s service station.

Although Stuart frequently visits friends and family in that area, last week’s Mobile Market visit was special. Among others, he was joined by his sister, Susan Carol, who helped out with her first Mobile Market. 

At the beginning of the day, Stuart said, “Coming back to Buena Vista is always special for me. Today, we are set up across from my family’s first commercial site in Buena Vista. My father, Tom’s, Standard Oil was across the street. Now Susan and I are back to celebrate our family heritage. The weather is perfect, and I hope the market will do well.”

Earlier in the day, WISK radio of Americus had invited listeners to visit with Stuart Perry on this historic corner. On arrival at the market, Stuart learned of this and saw that many citizens had indeed come to greet him.

“I do have many friends up here,” Stuart noted, “And I would like to thank the many customers and lifelong friends who came by to speak to me and buy something.” Stuart was pleased to later learn that the chatting and browsing resulted in the largest sales day ever for the Mobile Market, which even beat sales at the “mother ship,” Rudy’s Happy Patch Market, on the PWC campus.

It was a joyful day for meeting old friends, making new ones, and spreading the word about mental health, as well as selling many beautiful plants.
