Nalls Produce and Nursery-A Rooster Crows in Suburbia

Nalls Produce Rooster and ChickensLess than a mile from the gates of Fort Belvoir and the 5300 homes that make up Kingstowne, you can hear a rooster crow announcing a new day at Nalls Produce and Nursery.  Started as a way for the Nalls family to sell off some of the extra produce from their family garden today Nalls Produce and Nursery is a 5th generation roadside market in Alexandria, VA.

As you approach Nalls Produce on Beluah Street you can't help but be drawn in by the display of fresh flowers and vegetables out front.  Once you've pulled into the parking lot and start to explore the grounds you will not only hear the resident rooster but you will see the family of chickens peeking around underneath the flower trays.  Of course one of the first questions that visitors ask when they see the free roaming chickens is what happens if they try and cross the road?  Not to worry since the chickens have plenty of bugs and feed they haven't tried to do the impossible and get across busy Beluah Street.

 

Nalls Produce DisplayThe summer produce at Nalls is a site to see.  Artfully displayed in wagons, a tribute to way they first started selling produce, the fresh vegetables are reasonably priced and all locally grown.  The prices are far better than grocery store and in many cases less than the local farmers markets as well.  You will always find a great selection throughout the season.  In addition to the produce you will find a fresh jams, honey and a variety of sauces for your cooking as well.

Back outside you can wander through the rows and rows of beautiful hanging baskets, flowers and trees.  Nalls Produce and Nursery sells a great selection of plants labeled for buyers who need shade, full sun or even deer resistant plants.  While you wander through the plants you will encounter butterflies and an occasional hummingbird as well.

Cindy, the chickens are a really nice touch!  Wonder if they eat them.  Free range?  Ate bugs?  Had a great life?  That spells yummy to me!

Cindy,

I bet any former farm boys and girls stationed at Fort Belvoir get teary at Nalls Produce and Nursery.

Cindy- I love places like this. The ambience is so much nicer than a grocery store- the food is fresher(and local) and it's not as busy as a farmer's market.
