“ROADSIDE FARMER' MARKET”
Review of Donna's #6 Produce

Donna's #6 Produce
Ranked #1 of 1 Dessert in Florence
Description: It's mostly a produce/garden/souvenir stop, except that they have a dozen flavors or so of homemade ice cream (made specifically for sale there by Donna's husband), as well as fresh homemade fudge. It's a GREAT ice cream stop on South 49.

This is a great little mom and pop part fresh vegetable and fruit shop, part gift shop where you can get great soveigners of your stay in Mississippi for friends back home. They make their own ice cream, order a scoop to eat while you look around the gift shop. And dont forget the get a bag of hot boiled peanuts to eat as you continue on your journey.

Great produce stand and gift shop. Friendly staff. Wanted to try the "homemade ice cream" was more like blue bell. We did buy some peas. Absolutely loved them

This overgrown roadside produce stand is just a little south of Jackson, on the southern end of Florence along Hwy 49 (on the right side if you are headed south on Hwy 49). It has produce, just as the sign says, like you would expect to see at a roadside stand, except more of it and better quality, as well as a gardening/plant section and a souvenir/cookbook/etc section. But what you REALLY want to stop for is the delicious homemade ice cream.

And it's not just flavors for kids (though the vanilla, the deep chocolate, and the cookies and cream did look inviting), but discerning adults will love the blueberries and cream ice cream, or the strawberry shortcake, or any of the several others. They also serve homemade fudge, which looked downright sweet and delicious, but I'm an ice cream fanatic.

If you are in route to Hattiesburg, Mobile, or the Mississippi Gulf Coast from Jackson, it should be a must stop for you. Or if you live in Jackson, take the kids down the road for a great treat.
