The most popular use for okra may be as a thickening agent for gumbo and soups, with its gooey insides. It is also quite tasty when baked, broiled, roasted, fried, steamed, canned and pickled, quite the versatile veggie! Before you even get to the fruits, the plant itself produces gorgeous flowers, similar to hibiscus blooms, making it an edible ornamental. The leaves are spineless, making harvesting of the 3" pods easy work; however, wear long sleeves and gloves when working around okra plants. They can cause irritation and even cause allergic reactions in some people.

In light of everything going on in the world we have implemented some changes to ensure your safety. Our hours will be looking a little different Monday through Friday; we will be having reserved hours for those who are members of the vulnerable population group. 8 am to 9 am will be the time frame set aside for your needs to shop. We are also taking steps to help provide a cleaner environment for you and your loved ones. We have scheduled an employee to come in each morning prior to us opening to clean the store. We also strongly encourage that when you're in the store please practice social distancing. You should be at least 6 ft from others. As of right now we are still not set up to provide services such as curbside assistance. We are trying to do what we can in light of everything going on in the world. We encourage you to practice the safety guidelines that have been ordered by our Governor and Health Department. We appreciate your continued support of our small businesses during these unforeseen difficult times.
