October Squash at the Bradford Store

The Bradford Store, located near Huntersville and Davidson, is a food market specializing in local fresh foods, local free-range products, and organic goods. I stopped by last week and was surprised at the range of fruits and vegetables still available. The Bradford Store is located at 15915 Davidson-Concord Rd. in Davidson, and is open from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Tuesday-Friday, and Saturday from 9 a.m. to  4 p.m.
