If you're in the North Carolina mountains anywhere near Boone, a stop at the Tomato Shack for fresh fruits & veggies AND a look around this purely mountain, purely country little place can be a rich & unique experience. A "down home" conversation with the owner can be as informative as as it is entertaining, and the mountain humor & pleasantries abound. There are antique looking metal signs & old pop bottles all around; and in addition to all the good produce, you'll find unique home made jams and lots of different pickled products, as well as local/regional honeys, cheeses and hams. There are 2 stores with the same name, but we prefer the "little" Shack further down HWY 105, closer to Valle Crucis.
