The winner of this weekâ€™s $50 cash giveaway bought some of those tender turnip greens and highly recommends them. The winner this week is Alma Ford of Eupora. Her name was drawn by Kaylee Jo Berry, the daughter of Adam and Sarah Berry of Mathiston, with the help of Alma Herd, a Maben Market volunteer.
