Ever been to a place that you thought was just made for Saturday afternoons? Shady Acres Fruit Stand is such a place. Just a quick 10 miles up Highway 49 from Hattiesburg to Seminary, Shady Acres has produce, gifts, a garden center, jams and other canned goodies, burgers, blue plates, cakes, ice cream, etc. Wait, did I mention the burgers? Oh yeah. Some of the best homestyle burgers in the area in this reviewer’s opinion. You can get them with fries, baked beans, potato salad, or, for something a little different, some excellent sweet potato fries. The cakes are beautiful as well as delicious and would be perfect for anything from a picnic to Thanksgiving dinner. Bring the kids and a laid back attitude. Stroll around the patios and pick out that perfect watermelon. Or, wait a few weeks and check out the hay bales and pumpkins. Shady Acres Fruit Stand is located at 624 Highway 49 in Seminary.
