Never Skip a Chance to Visit a Great Summer Farmers’ Market

One of the greatest creations of our time might be the farmers’ market.


That’s an exaggeration. But aficionados of these farm-to-consumer marketplaces can vouch for it. You likely have favorites back home. So why not have a few when you visit Myrtle Beach, too?


Here’s a list of popular farmers’ markets on the Grand Strand.

Tips for Shopping at a Farmers’ Market

All this produce, so little time. Savvy shoppers share their secrets to maximizing the farmers’ market experience.

  1. Buy in bulk

You’ll get the best deals on what’s at its harvest peak, and it’ll challenge you to try many recipes to use it. You can freeze most leftovers for future use.

  1. Walk it first

Check it all out before busting out your wallet, to see what’s available and at what prices. Bigger markets will have an information booth with maps.

  1. Talk to the vendors

You get to know who you’re buying from, so ask questions about their wares and even values. They’re happy to share their story.
