“Double L” Starts 3rd Decade

It’s moved a couple of times. It’s added a few items. It’s raised prices once or twice.

But other than that, not much has changed since the Double L Farm Stand opened more than 30 years ago.

The first funky farm stand on Kings Highway North, near Nash’s Pond and the waterfall.

Owner Lloyd Allen (Double L — get it?) has offered roadside fruits, vegetables and more since the (other) Clinton administration.

(He did take off a few years, to try to write a musical and actually write a book, “Being Martha: The Inside Story of Martha Stewart and Her Amazing Life”).

Location #2: On the Post Road just over the Southport line, in the former Casa Verde Nursery.

His “roadside” is now a Post Road storefront near Hillspoint Road. But Double L has weathered everything from the economy and competition from new outlets to — well, the weather.

Enjoy your 3rd decade, Lloyd and crew. Here’s to more great, fresh food!

A promotion from Double L’s first year. Lloyd Allen’s style hasn’t changed a bit.
