I am wanting to do fruits ad veggies, for a center pieces, for my daughter’s wedding reception. Do you have any ideas? Have you ever heard of this before?

Tuesday, July 29th, 2008

That sounds like a wonderful and very unique idea. As a start, I would check online for places that do fruit bouquets as gifts. I would also suggest consulting with your florist. Best wishes.

I was just wondering if there was any way possible that I could order the most wonderful Georgia Peaches from your store and have them sent to me? I am a Thomastonian but now have been living in Norfolk,VA the past 7yrs. Every year I come home at least twice to visit my family, but before my journey back, I fill up my car with smoked sausage links,pork chops,cane syrup,brunswick stew, turkey creek skins,watermelon,boiled peanuts, and GEORGIA PEACHES from your store.Those are items that I really love and miss from home and since I cannot make it this season because I am having my labor induced on the 15th of August, I was wondering if there was any way I could maybe set up an account or something with your store to send me my favorites. I’ve begged my family all year and they keep promising to send something but havent yet. I have been craving those juicy peaches every since April. Is there anything you can do to help me out.

I don’t think we are the resource you are looking for since we ourselves don’t buy or sell fruits and vegetables. Perhaps your family can help you identify the contact information.

I am the Director of Nutrition at Masley Optimal Health Center. We received from “Fruits and Veggies More Matters” a wheel with much nutrition information about fruits on one side and vegetables on the other at a recent convention/meeting. We have had several clients request one. Are there any available, and how do we go about getting them. Thanks so much for your help, and I love your website.

Thank you for your compliment and request. This item is available in our Online Catalog.
