Meet The Orange Shop, a Roadside Stand Keeping Dreams Alive in North Florida

Visit The Orange Shop, a roadside citrus shop attracting visitors from around the world.

This year, Eater is teaming up with James Beard award-winning Southern Foodways Alliance to spotlight their documentary work, premiering a short film every other week. This next piece focuses on The Orange Shop, the last bastion of family roadside fruit businesses in northern Florida. The 78 year-old stand, located aptly enough in a town called Citra, began its life as a personal residence, where the owner would keep the citrus on the porch to keep it out of the sun. It's the same porch but with a whole lot more on offer — orange blossom honey, candy, perfume, juice — these day. Check it out.
