Our readers may wonder just how many posts we can write about eating. Well, it is a favorite subject for most of us, here at The House of 9 Lives! And, while we are on the subject, we would be remiss if we didn’t tell you Jazz is continuing to eat well – things are almost back to normal for him. This time however, we want to write about a place that “He” and “She” like to go to eat. It is the Green Valley Market and Cafe, located in Eclectic, Alabama on Highway 229 at Kudzu Korner Village.
Green Valley Market and Cafe offers Fine Meats and Wine, Gourmet Foods and Casseroles, Deli Sandwiches and Salads, as well as Custom Bakery Items and Catering. He and She have eaten there several times and have never been disappointed. Their menu is varied and the ingredients are fresh and tasty. Their specialty sandwiches include a traditional New Orleans Muffaletta, a Cuban Panini, and Yellowfin Tuna Salad. They also offer a “Create Your Own Deli Sandwich” option with your choice of meat, cheese and bread. There are several Salad selections to choose from, as well as Soups and great Side Dishes.
As if all this weren’t enough, they offer to go items including fully cooked casseroles in two sizes to feed either 2-3, or 6-8 people. Casseroles available include Almond Chicken, Jambalaya, Eggplant Parmesan, Beef Stroganoff, Meat and Three Cheese Lasagna, and more! Frozen side dishes are also available in two sizes of 3-4, or 8-10 servings. Choose from Squash Casserole, Creamed Spinach, or, Sweet Potato Casserole, just to name a few. Salads are also available. Another item you have to try, if you haven’t already, is the Tomato Pie. She has made a tomato pie for years that is pretty darn good, but the pies at Green Valley are settled into a delicious homemade crust that She is unwilling to attempt!
Another offering by Green Valley is Fresh Cut Meats. Steaks, Chops, Applewood Bacon, and Stuffed Chicken Breasts are some of the many items available.
Now you know the nice people at Green Valley wouldn’t leave you hanging after a fine meal, either! They offer many desserts; Cakes, Cookies, Pies and Cupcakes by individual servings, or whole, or by the dozen!
Great food is always a good reason to dine out, but you won’t be disappointed with the atmosphere at Green Valley, either! This quaint building is situated in a quiet rural area overlooking the sweetest little lilly-pad inhabited pond. Tables and chairs on the back porch make for a great outdoor dining experience. Inside, there is quite a variety of gift and gourmet food items. And, you won’t find a nicer group of people at any other eating establishment.
If you find yourself in the Lake Martin area, be sure to stop by Green Valley Market and Cafe for a great meal and a very pleasant experience. Who knows, you might even do a little shopping while you are there! Be sure to tell them you heard about them from The House of 9 Lives!
