Many Tyler County residents love homemade jellies, honey, and homegrown produce, but often go to great lengths to get it. Sometimes it can be hard to find affordable fresh produce locally but this week it's a little easier. In the Woodville Nails Parking lot across from Community Bank, there is a produce stand with fresh local honey, homemade Mayhaw Jelly, syrup, sorghum and ribbon cane as well as fresh sweet potatoes.
The honey is all made locally and comes from beehives right across the Tyler County line. The Mayhaw jelly is also made right here in South East Texas and is sold especially to Woodville residents. The syrups are also made by local residents that have dedicated their whole lives to making great tasting food from resources in and around Tyler County.
The produce stand also has hundreds of home grown sweet potatoes from Louisiana and Texas, and rumor has it that they are some of the best tasting potatoes in the South.
The stand is located on South Magnolia Street, in the Woodville Nails parking lot across from Community Bank.
