Like a lot of you, we try to buy local seasonal food as often as possible. Sometimes when cruising the Farmers Market or Whole Foods, it’s hard to tell what is actually seasonal AND local.

The festival celebrates the sustainability of our local seafood, one of the many green advantages we have here in the Charleston-area. This is a great chance to have some fun AND get your green […]


Could It Be Local?

Have you noticed the new captions in the produce department of Harris Teeter? Cute handwritten bubble signs announcing, “locally grown.” No kidding. Cabbages, collards, mustard greens, peaches, grape tomatoes, and others display their hometown pride.
