Since we moved to the country, I’ve struggled with grocery shopping. The nearest grocery store is 20-25 minutes away.
Thankfully early this spring, I stumbled across Me and McGee Market off Highway 70 in North Little Rock.
It is a gorgeous little farm stand full of pretty flowers, fruits, veggies, local cheeses, jams and jellies, pickles, salsa, homemade breads and grassfed meats.
As a foodie, it is my happy place. I visit the market every Saturday morning. I have grown to adore the Me and McGee Family, and I look forward to seeing them every weekend.
Neva, the owner, takes care of me. While we’ve been on Whole30, she’s held back dozens of eggs for me. She knows me. Remembers my name. Ask me about my week. She and her daughter, son, mom and husband are what make this little market so magical.
They are real people. They are my kind of people. They value good food, real food. They value community. They are invested in our little rural community. Constantly trying to make it better. Bringing people together.
It’s a truly beautiful sight.
We need more Me and McGee’s in this world. Little mom and pop shops and markets geared towards getting people better foods. It’s important. And I’m passionate about sharing what Neva and her family is doing because it will change the world for the better.
If you are in the Central Arkansas area, I highly suggest you visit Me and McGee Market. You will fall in love with it.
