Cordele is living up to
its nickname as the Watermelon capital of the world.
The farmers market is busy
right now with people buying and selling the sweet fruit.
Gary Holloway was buying a
lot of melons this afternoon to take back home to Alabama to sell.
He's been making the long
trip to the market for the past six or seven years.
"You have to get up
at the wee hours of the morning and make the trip. I stop in Columbus and eat
some breakfast and then drive on down. Usually I have someone with me, but
today I chose to come by myself," said Gary Holloway, Alabama Farmer.
Holloway enjoys the making
the trip during the early months of summer.
Every time he comes to the
Cordele Farmers Market, he hires locals to help load his truck.
