Johnny Howell Produce, the family-owned grower and distributor based in Bellevue with a large presence at the Nashville Farmers Market, has for years operated a satellite stand in front of Hillsboro High School on Hillsboro Road. This summer, customers began squeezing their peaches and thumping their melons at a new location on Glen Echo Road, across from the Green Hills post office. With the start of school, the Howells’ stand has moved again, and the red-and-white striped tent can now be found on the grounds of Trinity Presbyterian Church at 3201 Hillsboro Road. Bushels of tomatoes await, with some late-season Alabama peaches still available; fall plants have arrived. The Howells will be there seven days a week through Halloween.
