Get out of the house and head to Ambrose Family Farm. On the way home, stop by their Stono Market and Tomato Shed Café on Main Road to purchase groceries and get a local bite to eat. Ambrose Farm recently developed field trip and educational programs and is looking to offer more nutrient-dense wild foods at market, like pigweed, purslane, and lambsquarters. Ambrose now offers a variety of CSA options, from a “tiny share,” designed for students and singles who want just enough produce for three or four meals per week to the yearlong CSA, which runs 51 weeks, encompassing the three other CSA periods beginning in fall (late Sept.), winter (early Jan.), and spring (April). Everything in the CSA box is guaranteed fresh from the farm and certified natural, though customers may use their website to order North Carolina apples and other produce brought in regionally. Unfortunately their u-pick season is over, but there are still plenty of harvest veggies. There are 26 CSA drop-off spots throughout Charleston, or you can pick up your box at the farm.
