Stevenson, fifty-eight, still carries the same eclectic mix of gardening materials, handcrafted furniture, iron works, and fresh produce. There's also an art gallery featuring prints, paintings, and sculptures-plus blown glass birdbaths, globes, and yardarms-and a full-service floral department. The new location gives her room for lots more of everything. "We easily tripled the size," she says.

That allows Stevenson to sell ten times the fresh produce. It's piled high on an ancient buckboard wagon that sits just inside an enormous garage door in the old industrial building. Each morning she heads out to a local farm to buy her produce.

The gallery and floral department are in the station. The two-story red brick building was built in the early 1910s for passengers traveling on electric streetcars to Jackson from Ann Arbor and points east. The line stopped running in the late 1920s. Since then the station has served as both a market and a residence.
