The store opened in memory of Charlie Oliver, who sold produce at the intersection of County Road 491 and U.S. 41 in Holder for 30 years. Oliver died in August 2008.
Keeping a tradition alive

HOLDER — It’s been six years this month since longtime produce man Charlie Oliver died, but his dream of providing the community with fresh produce lives on.

For 30 years, Oliver sold his fresh fruits and vegetables at the intersection of County Road 491 and U.S. 41 in Holder, first from the back of his truck, then later at his own stand.

Born and raised in Dunnellon, Oliver grew up around farmers and fell in love with produce.
