Bali is the name of the Baghher- Ferguson Fruit Market that has been the hub of the neighborhood for nearly two decades.
It’s not hard to see why: the market is the heart of Bali.
It has the city’s best produce and its best produce has come from Bali’s fruit farmers.
The market’s owner, Joseph Sanson, is a former Baghhers father, and it’s a family business, too.
“We have a lot of friends from Balis own family.
My grandfather is Bali farmer, he grew fruits for Balis family,” he says.
But Sanson doesn’t sell his produce there.
“My business is all about Bali,” he said.
Sonson’s family started the fruit farm in 1973 when he was just 15 years old.
“It was the best part of my childhood, but it wasn’t until I was a teenager that I started to grow my own fruit,” he told us.
It was the first time a family owned fruit farm opened up in Bali in decades.
The family has grown the business to three locations, with a total of 11 acres.
The fruit market has expanded to several locations around the city, and now has more than a dozen locations.
For the last few years, Balis fruit farmers have grown their own produce, selling it at the market.
The market has also expanded its fruit trees, including an apple tree in the backyard of the family.
“The market started in the basement of my parents house and then expanded to the front yard, where they’ve grown all of their own fruits,” Sanson said.
“The fruits that we sell are grown in Balis’ own backyard,” he added.
“In addition to that, we have an apple orchard where they have grown and processed all of the fruit and then we’re selling that.”
The market is a hub for Bali and for its residents.
The Bali Community Food Bank also helps pay the rent and the costs of running the market and the market itself.
The markets success, Sanson says, is the fruit that people want to buy, so the market has a great place to grow and sell their produce.
The Market and the Baughher-Gibson Fruit MarketIt’s hard to find a place to eat in Balimba.
The Baghhans produce is so rich that many locals can’t afford to eat at the markets.
The fruit markets don’t always produce the freshest fruits.
But the Bali Market and Baughhers Fruit Market provide that choice for the community.
“We have fruit in the markets, we also have fruits on the market, and we have fresh produce,” Sansons father, Joseph, said.
The community grows the fruit for the market to eat, which helps sustain the community and its farmers.
Sansons father and his family are farmers and the community organizes its fruit and market.
They also raise chickens for the markets market.
“I know my father is a farmer, and I have a good relationship with him.
We just have a mutual respect for each other,” Sansonic said.
They grow the fruit in their own backyard.
“Our market is really the only place where you can find fruits.
We don’t have any other place to buy fruit.
It is really a very important place for Balimbalis community,” Sansson said.
But the market’s success is not solely about the fruit.
For residents, it’s also about the food.
The Bali market also provides opportunities for young people to learn about the arts.
The people who go there to study dance and literature, or just get away for a day, come back with a new outlook on life, Sansons mother said.
“There are many arts and crafts, and many students come here.
There is a great sense of community in Balinas arts and culture,” she said.
A lot of people in Baliamba want to grow their own fruit, and they are not alone.
Baliis fruits are grown at farmers markets and on the streets.
For Sansons family, the market was an important way to help them.
“I don’t know how I can repay this community with anything other than the fruit,” Sanso’s father said.
For now, the Balihans fruit and vegetable farm and the Balibhan Fruit Market remain a vibrant part of Baliambas food culture.
“There are a lot more fruits and vegetables grown in this area, and so we are always looking for new sources of food, to make the markets a more sustainable food source,” Sansoning said.
