The heirloom tomatoes ( German Johnson and Cherokee Purple) are in and really are impressive. We have some really nice nice beefstake tomatoes, lots of sweet small roma and regular size romas. The tomato crop looks very good this year.

 The peach crop is hitting another gear. All the peaches are freestone. Now is a good time for buying by the basket. Don't forget to check out the peach pound cake and peach pies in the bakery. Also the blueberry and blackberry creamy pies. This is the season for enjoying these as well.

 The Blueberry field will be open every day this week, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday. You may park behind the market and walk to the field if you desire. The roads are still wet but you can drive. Be sure to follow the signs and avoid soft ground off the road.

   Be sure to check out the items in the Bakery. Peach Pound cake is in demand as well as blueberry and blackberry pies.

   Peaches , sweet corn, squash, cucumbers, tomatoes  and more are coming off the farm. Heirloom tomatoes and really nice beefstake type tomatoes are in now.

    Organic potatoes ( yes red ,white and blue ones ) are in and offer a fun way to celebrate the fourth. Be sure to get the red flesh potatoes if you are making red,white and blue fires or potato salad. An earlier post included websites that explained why colored potatoes are better than white potatoes. Organic basil is in really good now. If you are wanting to make pesto now is the time. You can buy basil in bulk at a good price just for ths purpose. If you don't see enough basil that  you want ask someone and we can get it.

Our crops grow slowly during these short, cold winter days. Due to this the Farm Market will be closed in January and most of February. 

We will RE-OPEN as the days get longer and the plants get bigger!

In January we'll be back at 

The International Culinary Institute of Myrtle Beach

at Market Common on Thursday afternoons from 1:00 - 6:00!

With the start of a New Year we're working on some new projects, like this High Tunnel which will protect plants that are growing in the field. This allows them to mature faster, so we can have delicious produce for y'all sooner! 

We will be back at the Myrtle Beach Farmers Market starting Spring 2019 - October.
