Celeste Albers is not just the Green Grocer, she’s the green goddess of the local food scene. Back when she grew boutique ingredients for guys like Mike Lata and Frank Lee, she was known for the beauty of her vegetables. Lata gets somewhat wistful about it: “Hers were the best vegetables I’d ever seen in my life. She was unbelievable at it.” Today, she sticks to growing potatoes and onions while spending most of her time tending to her raw cow’s milk and chicken egg operation. The chickens and cows feast on perennial pastures of crabgrass, vetch, and ryegrass and munch seasonal plantings of millet, sorghum sudan, and oats. The milk is rich and creamy and her fresh eggs with the bright yellow-orange yolks show up all around town, with Robert Stehling at Hominy Grill being her number one egg customer. “I’m pretty much committed to meeting his demand,” says Albers, who also sells raw milk, grass fed beef, and fresh eggs every week at the Charleston Farmers Market. Fortunately for the farm, the rain this summer did little damage and they are ready for the fall season. The pork and beef product is used at Ted’s Butcherblock, FIG, and The Glass Onion. But if you want fresh Sea Island eggs and milk at market, you best get there early.
