I think Carolina Farmin' has wonderful produce at unbeatable prices. What people don't understand is that REAL produce isn't always "picture perfect." Anyone who has ever had a vegetable garden knows that home grown zucchinis, watermelons, peppers, green beans... pretty much anything... don't look in the garden how they do in Harris Teeter or at Walmart. They also have a lot more flavor. Where in town can you find green bell peppers for $1.59 a pound?? Sometimes Harris Teeter puts them on sale at 3 for $5. I can buy five for a dollar at Farmin'. North Carolina grown Christmas Trees for $35??? It's an absolute bargain. No, they don't have every grocery item (and those grocery items are a bit more expensive than you hope for), but they have NC products and the most "neighborhood" friendly atmosphere I've experienced in Wilmington. They remember their customers, treat them like family, and will be sorely missed in the downtown community. Haters can shop at Walmart and get the "sub-par" quality and service they deserve.
