My husband went in there yesterday for fresh melons..he said he almost came home with melon holders. They had bras for sale in there... and he said they even had a bra and panties set along with several other non-food items. I guess they take "one stop shopping" to the next level. The melons were rotten and the bras weren't my size. Guess we will have to make a trip to Aldi for produce. I have been avoiding Aldi because I seem to get sidetracked with the non-food items there too. Thank God Belmont has a farmer's market! Too bad it's only open on Fridays.Peace out!

I might. But I kinda like the idea of buying underwares and peaches at the same place. Can't beat that with a stick!

BELMONT FARMERS MARKET has good product- but few vendors- it's a really small town. Nothing wrong with supporting the downtown and a local entrepreneurial economy on this side of the Catawba River too. Makes for a nice Friday evening outing without the crowds of the bigger market.

You know, when I go to buy food, I really am not in a charitable pursuit. LOL. I'm shopping for quality, value, and selection. It's very good to give to those in need and just fine to stroll through town and see if they have anything you want...but usually they don't. I'm going to go where I can find what I need. Everybody keeps talking about helping the downtown merchants like tyhey are all charity cases. Listen- offer a product people want or need at a fair price and you will do well- otherwise, you won't. Some merchants get mad because they are " supported". Business ain't about " supporting". If I want what you have , I'll buy - if I don't, I won't. Plain and simple.
