Visit a Farmers Market for Fresh Produce and Fun Shopping

A visit to the farmers market is a great way to find locally grown fruits and vegetables, organic food, handmade crafts, and live plants for your home and garden. Chances are there’s one near you as the Grand Strand has several of these weekly events happening from early spring

through late fall. Some of them are on Saturday and some are during the week, so you can catch fresh veg as it comes out of the field.

There are also several farm stores and local farms that you can visit for fresh produce, live plants, baked goods, and jams, jellies and relishes.  In fact, if you go to the seafood market for fresh fish and visit a  farm or farmers market for fresh fruit and veg, you’ll only have go to the grocery store for those things you can’t find anywhere else. 

The Clemson University Cooperative Extension is a great resource for growing your own garden or buying South Carolina farm products. In addition to free advice, the Extension also handles several of the local South Carolina markets under the Waccamaw Markets program.

So gather up your baskets and cloth bags and head outdoors to shop. Here’s where to find the markets.

With home vegetable gardens growing in popularity, it’s a good idea to know what and when to plant, and how to adapt to our sandy soil.
