Southern Boys Soda Works
For our first Market Monday we would like to introduce a farmers market vendor who has now become personal friends of ours. Southern Boys Soda Works! They are an old fashioned soda fountain that makes all their sodas, milkshakes, and other drinks by hand from local organic ingredients! They offer a wide range of different drinks, both hot and cold. Their signature drinks are certainly their homemade cream soda and root beer, which he spent months developing the right blend for. He has also developed a butter beer that can be enjoyed either frozen or hot, and it is absolutely delicious!
They originally started this journey by brewing beer at home. They wanted to share this home brewed tastiness with others but realized that the amount of red tape involved with selling alcohol was just not worth it. So they decided to take the same principles and apply them to soda! Before our modern commercialized takes on soda, they were all made by home brewed production just like beer and other alcoholic drinks.
Not only are these drinks super tasty, they are also free of all the extra nasty additives that the big corporations use. It’s just plain ingredients (mostly organic) and no high fructose corn syrup! As different fruits are in season locally, he uses those to make different fruit based sodas as well. Their peaches’n’cream drinks are made with texas peaches, and their blackberry sodas are made with local hand picked blackberries!
They also offer some lovely tea lattes with zero sweetener, milkshakes, old fashioned egg creams, and a wide assortment of seasonal drinks like cocoa and cider. His syrups go great in cocktails as well as sodas, and you can take some home to make your soda throughout the week. They are only available at the Memorial Village Farmers Market, so be sure to stop by and see them. If you’ve never seen a soda mixed by hand, this is a definite stop at your next visit to the market!
