Fresh Farmers’ Market Produce – in January!
Here in the Lowcountry we enjoy our Farmers Markets pretty much year-round. In fact, although it is the end of January, local Farmers Markets are still going strong with seasonal produce. While other parts of the country wonder when winter will end, here in the Lowcountry Hilton Head Lakes residents can enjoy fresh, locally grown produce.
But what exactly is in season produce at this time of year? There can’t be that much… can there? Oh, but there is, lots of healthy items in fact! From cabbage to collards, kale to sweet potatoes, carrots to zucchini you’ll find foods to help you stick to those new year resolutions without resorting to the frozen food aisle.
The Bluffton, South Carolina Farmers Market – a mere twenty or so minutes from Hilton Head Lakes – has been going strong on Thursdays since 2006 in historic downtown Bluffton. This family-friendly market showcases local growers, local food vendors, local entertainment, local community causes and information about the Bluffton area.
More than just a place to pick up that extra bunch of carrots, the market features demonstrations by local chefs in the preparation of healthy lifestyle dishes. Not only will you find that next great recipe, but you’ll also learn the best way to shop the market to eat healthy. Interested in herbs and flowers as well as sweet potatoes? The Clemson Extension master gardener program is on hand to pass along gardening tips, planting practices, soil correction solutions and more.
