Weekly Photo Challenge: LOCAL

The theme of this week’s WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge is LOCAL.

Locally produced fresh fruits and vegetables are offered in a neighborhood open market with plenty of pumpkins for Halloween.


My favorite local barbeque spot is the Rock Store in Stallings, NC, a repurposed gas station. The pig is smoked on site (just at the right of the building), and the ribs are as good as the wood smoked barbeque.

    Looks like a great place to enjoy a pulled-pork sandwich and grab some fresh produce. Is it open year round? My French market ends in a couple of weeks – shuts down for winter. But, it’ll be back in late April. Have a great weekend!
