Frei's Fruit Market

Located in a little city in southern Utah is Frei's Fruit Market. It has been a staple in the community since 1956. The kids and I have frequented this place on many occasions. We really have been going there for over some 30 years. I live about an hour away now and the kids are grown and gone ........so I don't get by there like I use to. I probably haven't been there or really even thought about it in three or four years. I was driving by to go to the local cemetery ( remember I photograph tombstones for their relatives).

I was so excited to see it still there. I quickly pulled over and did some shopping. Everything looked so fresh and bright. I ended up buying some sweet corn, purple onion, pattypan squash, melons, tomatoes, and some Anasazi beans.

Oh, the memories came flooding back........All the times we had gone here so the kids could pick out their pumpkins that they would soon turn into "Halloween Art". It was bittersweet. I miss my children being children........but you can't hold back time.
