At some point, most children run a lemonade stand; Cary Nalls, however, broke into the business world with a produce stand. In the early 1960s, young Cary and his grandparents had a garden that grew more goodies than they could eat. So Cary convinced them to set up a stand, which quickly expanded to a tent, which eventually turned into a permanent structure. By age 15, when most kids are pouring all their time into being popular or getting taller, Cary had himself a bustling business.
Today, family members runs things at Nalls Produce. Despite its success over the years, the store still identifies itself as a roadside market. Trucks arrive multiple times per week loaded with fresh produce, keeping the shelves stocked with seasonal fruits and vegetables. In the fall, Nalls transforms into a pumpkin patch, where children explore tubes and tunnels made of straw; in the winter, the property becomes a Christmas-tree lot. The store remains just as connected to the community now as it was in the '60s, too; it works with local schools, charities, and organizations on numerous projects.
