Liz Stagg and her husband Frank Coppola owned and operated The Farmers' Market Store for 12 years. It was a small store in Oxford, MS that offered local produce, meats, dairy, and other food items. Her husband passed away in 2015, and Liz closed the store in October 2016. I was trying to understand how Liz saw her place in the community, and what drove her to open, and close, the store.
This oral history was conducted as a final project for Catarina Passidomo’s class on Southern Foodways in the Fall of 2016.
