From Farm to Table

Lee’s Farmers Market
Not in the mood to eat out every day of your vacation, but still want to enjoy fresh local produce and sea food? That’s the mindset I was in, driving down Route 17 in the hope of finding a farmer’s market offering farm fresh eggs and perhaps a few peaches. As if right on cue, I spotted the sign for Lee’s Farmer’s Market and quickly made a U-turn to take a peek inside.
Walking through the front door, I knew immediately I’d hit the jackpot. The market was full, wall-to-wall, of fresh produce, meats and seafood, as well as a variety of homemade baked goods and local packaged foods.
After talking with the manager, I learned that the eggs I was after were so fresh I had to walk out back to the hen house and gather them myself. I also found out they have a garden and what produce they don’t grow on-site, they source from nearby farms.
I picked up a few items to stock the hotel fridge for the remainder of my stay in Myrtle Beach; I highly suggest you do the same!
