Are Those Roosters Hanging Around Outside the Gates of Fort Belvoir?

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.

If you are looking for great produce, beautiful plants and a local business to support then look no further than Nalls Produce and Nursery on Beluah Street in Alexandria, VA. 

When you are done at Nalls Produce and Nursery give call Cindy Jones at 703-346-2213 to help you find a new home to plant those new flowers and a kitchen to cook your veggies.  I'll be glad to show you the variety of homes available around Fort Belvoir.  No hassle, no pressure just straight talk about whether now is the right time for you to buy a new home.

Love Alexandria, at some point this summer I have to head over to the Gentlemens Quarters for a shave and haircut...love that place

Posted by Gerry Michaels, GettysburgGerry Social Meida (Glasswork Media Arts) about 8 years ago

My goal is to own a large piece of land with a Roster on it. Love it

Cindy if they moved the roosters closer they could use them to wake up the troops

Cindy, do the sell really fresh eggs from these happy hens?

Posted by Patricia Kennedy, Home in the Capital (RLAH Real Estate) about 8 years ago

I hope they are happy hens :-)  I love the comments above, and like Harry, my dream is to have a nice chunk of land with all happy animals on it!

This is one of my all time favorite places - especially at Halloween.  I've never seen so many varieties of pumpkins or gourds!

Gerry-For a moment there I was worried about where you might be going :-)

Harry-the Rooster will be quite happy with a few hens around to crow about.


Bill good idea. I'll call the base commander and suggest it.

Pat-you know I didn't look.  You would think they would.

Kristin-I owned 3 1/2 acres out in the Shenandoah Valley and I loved my huge garden.  My neighbor would watch it for me during the height of the summer if I couldn't get up for a few days during the week.  My goal is to have another piece of land in the next few years.

 

Susan-they do a great pumpkin patch for the kids.

Next time you come to visit your Saybrooke listing, bring me some fresh tomatoes from this market.  I can smell them from here.

Posted by Chris Ann Cleland, Associate Broker, Bristow, VA (Long and Foster REALTORS®, Gainesville, VA) about 8 years ago

There is nothing better than fresh produce.  I enjoy growing my own tomatoes, peppers and such, but don't have room for all the wonderful things that this store probably has.

Posted by Anne Clark (Metro Referrals) about 8 years ago

Chris Ann-I will do that.

Posted by Cindy Jones, Pentagon, Fort Belvoir & Quantico Real Estate News (Integrity Real Estate Group) about 8 years ago

Anne-I miss having my own garden.
