The former Goodwin's Stand, was opened by Mason Farms in the Summer of 2008. Its convenient location from East 38th Street and its outdoor feel has made it a great spot for our customer's who live on the East side of Erie. Old French carries a bit of everything from annuals and perennials in the Spring and Summer to Christmas Trees in the Winter. We also have our mouth watering strawberries, homegrown sweet corn and other homegrown produce throughout the seasons along with delicious jams, jellies and gardening items available. If we don't have something here and our store on Peninsula Drive does, we can have it sent over to save our customers a trip to the 'west' side of town!
