Magnolia Market (Trumpet & Vine)
When socialite Avery Saucier and blue-collar widow Trish Manning literally run into each other at the corner of Trumpet and Vine, a less-than-friendly relationship develops. But they have more in common than they want to admit: both have lost their husbands -- one to divorce, the other to a heart attack -- and both have lost their livelihoods.
With hostility, desperation, and a budget tighter than Avery's skinny jeans, the women decide to go into business together selling mouth-watering biscuits from a rundown store across the street from the popular Sweet Olive Folk Art Gallery. With a gift for baking and making people feel welcome, they transform their Magnolia Market into a regionally famous 'biscuit boutique.' As Avery and Trish become increasingly involved in the life of the Trumpet and Vine community, they find themselves becoming matchmakers for the local clientele. But before she realizes it, Avery herself may be the one to have found her perfect match.
