Crossover Produce open

Published 12:01 am Saturday, June 6, 2015

Crossover Ministry’s produce stand located between Andalusia and Opp is open for business.

Since mid May, the stand has been selling vegetables, including onions, squash, green peppers, chili peppers, cucumbers, peas, butter beans and more to customers who’ve been craving something more healthy.

Crossover Ministry Executive Director Todd Sasser said the first two weeks the produce stand was open, business was slow.

“We’d make $30 a day,” Sasser said. “Last week, business really picked up. We’ve had some good days.”

Sasser said Thursday, the stand brought in more than $500.

“God has blessed us,” he said.

Most of the produce sold is grown in the ministry’s vegetable garden behind the stand.

In addition to the various vegetables the stand is producing, there are pecans, blueberries, Crossover Salsa, sauces and pickled vegetables for sale.

Sasser said the produce stand will stay open until the end of August, and all of the money made from sales goes straight back to the ministry.

The produce stand has been selling vegetables for four years.

On Monday, Sasser said the stand will be selling watermelons and cantaloupes.

The hours of operation are Tuesdays, Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays, from 8 a.m. until 4 p.m.
