More produce rolls in at Packer Produce in Moultrie


South Georgia farmers markets are getting busy. 

The folks at Packer Produce in Moultrie say things are picking up after a slow start to the season.

They're open every day but Sunday, selling fresh fruit such as peaches,strawberries, blueberries and watermelons, as well as produce including squash,  zucchini, and collard greens. 

The manager says some items were a little late coming in because of so much rain early this year.

"So we have different farmers that we work with that bring in the produce and we are very proud to in turn sell it and let the community take advantage of the great local produce that's in season right now," says Tommie Beth Willias.

All the produce, plus the jams and sauces they sell, come from Coquette County and the surrounding area.
