Burris Market

If you have driven down hwy 59 to Gulf Shores in the last several years you have been right past Burris' Market in Loxley. They are one of our favorite WhistleStop markets, so we stopped by on our way to the beach last month.
Loxley is the home of the Strawberry Festival in April. This small town festival is complete with a Little Miss Strawberry and lots of fun and games. Burris has a huge blow up strawberry in the parking lot, so you will know where the market is.

Our friends at Burris Market are carrying all of our WhistleStop Products, so this would be the perfect place to stock up on your batter mixes and marinade. You can even pick up some seafood batter mix to make your own crab claws at the beach. They carry our cookbooks too, so you can pick up a Mother's day gift. While you're at it... try a bowl of their cobbler and ice cream. It was worth the splurge!
Y'all enjoy!

You know, the 15 yrs since we have lived here in Tuscaloosa County, we have never been to Gulf Shores. How sad, right? Blessings.

I just LOVE BUrris'! It is tradiotn to srop there each time we got to the beach and get fresh veggies. The same people ( as I am sure you already know) have Andy's on Rocky Ridge Rd in Vestavia. Good eats! I didnt realize they carry your products. Way cool!

I always feel like I've reached "home" when I get to Burris's Market. And yes, the cobbler is really good! Thanks for the sweet reminder. Again, thanks for the recommendation on Ballooning in Tuscany. I had an email from Robert just the other day. He and Liz are so delightful.

His son, Andy Burris, has a vegetable market in Vestavia Hills (suburb of B'ham). Many of the same items. YUMMY!
