We made a stop at the Metter Farm Market, the salvage grocery I mentioned earlier this year. I loved these farm bouquets on the counter. In fact, I'm kicking myself for not buying one. At least the photo was free!
Unfortunately, on-site bakery was no longer operating. I couldn't find as many grocery deals as last time, either. I did stock up on Pria Carb bars 10/$1 and on convenience foods for the rest of the trip. I tore myself away from the apron display and the Mennonite cookbooks.
Here's the big news: so many of you asked for directions last year, I wrote them down this time! From I-16, exit 104, Metter, Georgia: Exit heading north on GA 23/S. Lewis St. Turn right on East Broad/SR 46 toward Statesboro. Metter Farm Market is less than a mile away, next to Fred's Discount Store. Less than 5 minutes from the exit.
Unlike many Mennonite markets, this store does not sell bulk grains and spices. I'm not sure I'd make a special trip to shop here, but it's a good local resource with loads of fresh produce and sausage. For a quick Interstate 16 detour, Metter Farm Market can't be beat.
