The other day Laurie and I were driving through Loudon Tennessee…not on US 11 but on Grove Street…and I spotted a new establishment that had set up shop in a previously empty building. We decided to stop and check it out!
This is the Jiffy Park Produce store…a business that had been recently started up by a local couple. During our first visit, we just bought a couple of tomatoes but we noted that they had some mighty fine looking peaches for sale…and Laurie would need several peaches for a dessert she was making for a party in a week or so. We were assured that they’d still have some great peaches on hand when we needed them.
So, about a week later we stopped by to pick up the peaches and, as you can see, we picked up a few other items as well. We bought half of a humongous cantaloupe, some zucchini and yellow squash, a jar each of pickled watermelon rinds and pickled beets (the owner canned the pickled beets herself)…as well as a 2 lb. package of Amish Roll Butter. (We love this butter over all others!)
The following day I cut up the cantaloupe into bite sized chunks, we each took a fork and we demolished 2/3 of this big serving bowl of fruit… This was hands down the best cantaloupe we’d ever eaten. It was perfectly ripe and sweet to the pallet!
The produce and products are top notch, the price is right and the people at Jiffy Park Produce are very nice too… If you’re in the area, stop by and see what they have to offer! Jiffy Park Produce is located at 911 Grove Street in Loudon Tennessee. Phone: 865-408-2901 or 865-388-9807.

Thanks for stopping by for a visit!
