Meet MoonPie John and the store that bears his name

NEW MARKET, Ala. (TENNESSEE VALLEY LIVING) - Most people are familiar with New Market, but not everyone knows the small town used to be called Hump.

Hump is where John Taylor grew up selling groceries for a living and giving away peppermints and MoonPies to make people smile. Little did he know that one day there would be a mercantile shop in his honor, still making folks smile.

At MoonPie John’s Mercantile, you can find vintage style candy and colas, locally made goods and of course, MoonPies.
