Friends Network through Market
Rudy’s Happy Patch Market is a great place to catch up with old friends, as well as find great produce and blooming plants. Perry Wellness Center founder and CEO Stuart Perry has lived in South Georgia all his life, and he frequently reconnects with people from his past through market outreach.
One recent example: Since Stuart’s time as a resident of nearby Buena Vista, the Dent and Perry families have been good friends. For the second year, John Dent of Dent Hardware recently requested hanging baskets and other plants from the market.
“It is great to continue a proud family friendship,” Stuart notes. “I want to share the goodness of Perry Wellness Center at Dent Hardware. This continues to be a good partnership of sharing good products.”
Stuart is also delighted to show off the growing market this spring. “We have had some great days this spring,” he says. The growing market has expanded its space and its selection of products. Located at 302 East Furlow Street in Americus, Rudy’s Happy Patch Market brightens its corner in the historic district with a profusion of blooming plants, colorful signs, and lush greenery.
