Stop by the Burris Farm Market on the way to your coastal vacation

What's great about house or condo vacation rentals is that they're outfitted with kitchens, giving you the chance to cook your own meals during your beach getaway. Located just north of Gulf Shores is Loxley, where you can stock up on fresh groceries at the Burris Farm Market.

Stop by the Burris Farm Market on the way to your coastal vacation

Have you ever been on vacation and stayed at a hotel while wishing you could save money and enjoy the comforting foods of home? Luckily, all Gulf Shores area vacation condos and beach houses are outfitted with a full kitchen, so you can wake up your family with the smell of fresh buttermilk pancakes or sizzling bacon. Before you arrive at your charming beachside rental, you may want to stop at the Burris Farm Market in Loxley, north of Gulf Shores.

This sweet establishment is open daily from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m., making it easy to stop in to stock up on the season's freshest produce throughout the year.

Seasonal fruits and vegetables

Hit up the Burris Farm Market before arriving at Gulf Shores rentalsIn the summer, the farm's stalls are filled with juicy tomatoes, hot banana peppers, Silver King sweet corn and succulent cantaloupes that look as if they were just plucked off the vine. When the autumn and winter hit, it's time for you to stock up on beets, kale and butternut squash, which would combine to make a perfect soup on a cool Alabama evening.

Picking up a snack

OK, so you're not Martha Stewart - that's not a problem. If your family wants to stop and eat somewhere before getting to your beach rental, you can still stop at the Burris Farm Market and pick up some savory breads, fresh-baked muffins, shortcakes and sweet cobblers. You can also order lunch for everyone; a ham-and-cheese sandwich sounds perfect.

Supporting local businesses

True to the Southern way, the Burris Farm Market is one of many local businesses that provides customers with inexpensive goods. You can do your part by purchasing goods harvested and made by Alabama's hard-working farmers and bakers.
