A couple months ago, we asked our readers how they were buying local food. With oil prices at an all-time-high, cooking with locally grown food can greatly reduce your impact on the environment (and save some serious cash too!)
We had 99 respondents at the time of this writing, and over 40% were shopping at local farmers markets. This is not surprising, as our area has a couple great ones. Local seafood and farms were the next targets, followed by the co-op. The Ambrose Family Farm CSA is really starting to take off (we’re members!), so I might have to bring back this poll next year and see what’s changed.
You can still take the poll and check out a list where you can buy local food after the jump.
Here are a few placed where you can pickup some locally grown grub:
- Boone Hall Farms
- Charleston Farmers Market
- Earth Fare
- Edible Lowcountry
- James Island Presbyterian Church Farmers Market
- Mount Pleasant Farmers Market
- Mount Pleasant Seafood
- North Charleston Farmers Market
- Stono Farm Market
- Summerville Farmers Market
- Whole Foods Market
