LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

As the temperature drops coming into the fall season, some South Plains farmers are forced to stop their growing season. However, for those who grow in greenhouses, a new store will allow them to make a profit year round.

The Revolution Farmers Market will open on November 4th inside of the South Plains Mall near the Bealls Department Store.

Quentin Clendenen, owner of Revolution Farms, produces vine-ripe tomatoes in greenhouses on the South Plains.

He says, "We pick every single day, so everything you buy for that day will be harvested within one or two hours."

His family of four relies on the sale of his tomatoes.

"Growing is really stressful if this is your sole income. Sometimes you feel like you're rolling the dice."

Clendenen says up to 80,000 pounds of tomatoes can come out of his greenhouses each year.

"It's a lot. You need a high traffic area to get rid of that, so I came up with this idea about six months ago."

He now owns a store in the South Plains Mall where local products that are usually only sold during the summer months at Farmers Markets can now be sold all year. This will allow more than 20 local growers a chance at a year-round income. 

The tomato farmer says he named his company after his desire to make an impact on local growers.

"We named it Revolution Farms because that's what we want to start. We want to start this revolution to get our produce here and not get it from Florida, California and Mexico. We can do it right here. We want people to join the revolution."

A variety of fruits, vegetables and handmade goods such as soaps will be available inside of his store.
