Fun at the Farmers Market

New & Improved Farmers Market Reopens May 25

Be sure to check out our local Farmers Market when you’re vacationing in North Myrtle Beach this summer. The market is located off Highway 17 on 1st Avenue South (turn right at Martini’s Restaurant). There’s plenty of on-site free parking and lots to see while you wander among the booths.

Two new open-air, metal-roofed shelters connected by colorful shade sails will provide over 4,000 square feet of covered space for farmers and vendors to display and sell their fresh produce, fruits and merchandise. Vendors and shoppers will welcome the shaded relief from the summer sun, protection from the occasional summer shower, and the new restroom facilities.

As a member of the Waccamaw Market Cooperative, the North Myrtle Beach Farmers Market supports Certified South Carolina Grown products. The market will be open beginning May 25th on Tuesdays and Fridays from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.

Locals and vacationing families love visiting the Farmers Market to fill their pantries with a wide variety of healthy, locally grown foods. Last summer, I made a habit of stopping by at least once each week to pick up a basket of tasty tomatoes and a box of juicy South Carolina peaches. Often, I’d find a watermelon or cantaloupe begging to come home with me, too.

In addition to produce, you’ll find vendors selling everything from local shrimp and seafood to jams, jellies, honey, and handmade crafts. I’ve even picked up some very helpful gardening tips and beautiful potted plants from Jay & Connie at the Tropical Nursery booth.

Another great feature… the Market is conveniently located just across from the wonderful North Myrtle Beach Public Library. You’ll find lots to read, a wide selection of movies to check out, and plenty of computer terminals with free WIFI.

Come on out to the Farmers Market this summer. Fresh and local is definitely the BEST!
