The 3rd time’s the charm.
After 12 years on King’s Highway North, and 2 more in Southport, the Double L Farm Stand is ready to open at a 3rd location. For the 1st time, all the produce will have 4 walls, and a roof over its head.
And — also new — Double L will be a year-round operation.
The new site is 730 Post Road East — next to Calise’s, just down from Cumberland Farms. The storefront has been vacant for a while, after housing a salon.
A nice tile floor remains — but that’s the only remnant of the previous tenant. The rest will be pure Double L. Lloyd is recycling everything from Southport: tables, skids, bricks, and “whatever else was laying around.”
Opening day is Friday, May 28 — “come hell or high water, painted or not,” Lloyd says. “A produce place has to be ready by Memorial Day.
“It’s great to be back in Westport,” he adds, joking that “this is like moving to Beverly Hills.”
Lloyd’s many loyal customers will welcome him back with open arms — and bulging tote bags.
“We’ll continue to focus on ‘local’ and ‘organic,'” he promises. “I just got back from Amish country, and we’ve got the same peach grower as last year. We won’t get too fancy.”
Just good — no, great — produce. Selected, displayed and sold the Lloyd Allen Double L way — with llots of llove.
