If you enjoy outfitting your yard and patio with healthy plants; if you value Alabama-made art and crafts; and if you prefer (and who doesn’t?) fresh fruits and veggies from nearby farms, then Ingram’s Farmers Market & Garden Center could be your go-to, one-stop shop for all of the above.
But plenty of people who neither want nor need produce, plants or pottery regularly file through Ingram’s front doors. They walk right past the piles of peaches and baskets of begonias and make a beeline for the back counter, eyes homed in on the chalkboard menu. They’re here for the food, and probably most of them, the barbecue.
In Millbrook, this multitasking market was a produce stand in the past. But when Mike and JoAnne Ingram bought it in 2018, they gave it a facelift and greatly expanded its offerings. Mike had sold a business and entered the corporate world. But after a decade of that work, he missed the interaction he’d had with customers when he was a business owner. “I wanted to get back into making those personal connections,” he says. “And that’s what we’re doing here. I love talking to people, and Millbrook has been so supportive. It’s great. I love that they love our food.”
