Re: “Johns Island Farmers Market

This is a great market that defines the meaning of sustainability by keeping it local. There are lots of vendors selling their amazing products in an easy to park, room to walk about, and fun atmosphere.

Re: “Famous Mike's Peanuts

While I can appreciate the honorable gentleman's (anti-mike's peanuts) opinion. I have to agree to disagree. Granted he wasn't born here, but Mike has been in this area since the mid-90's which makes him as Charlestonian as anyone else. He's been featured on National Television for his products and his personality; He's sent his product overseas to the troops. The mayors of Charleston and North Charleston frequent his stand at the market. And he's been a fixture at the Charleston farmers market, Charleston Tea Plantation's First Flush festival and MUSC for years. Mike is notably gruff at times, and has a sarcastic wit (comically so), but at least you know without a doubt about his strength of character. His notoriety brings great credit to our beautiful city and its surrounding communities. Your comment smacks of a bias against "northerners", many of whom have contributed greatly to our ranking as one of the country top tourist destinations. Would you (anti-mike) be more comfortable if he dressed like Colonel Sanders?

Re: “Myers Blueberries

The best orchard I've seen! Big, ripe, sweet blueberries, and easy picking. Well worth the trip to Summerville.

Re: “King of Pops

Truly an icon, we love this guy! He completes our Saturday morning farmers market jaunts with his cart o' deliciousness. Summertime floods in with bold and juicy favorites that are full of flavor. Strawberry Basil, Thai Tea, Honeysuckle Lime, Hibiscus Pom, Fruity Pebbles, Salted Caramel the list goes on and on with flavors constantly changing with what is fresh and ripe at that time. True, its frozen but you can be sure it was only frozen a week ago at most. I don't know how he keeps up with the demand. Inventive and constantly throwing me a curve ball with new flavors, I have a hard time staying steady with my all-time favorites and am known to cheat on them with the flirty new flavor of the day. The King is keeping it local by using local products and we love that. At Pet Fest, he even made dog cups too. (Our dog Mojo loved his!) Make room in your day to find his cart (I believe he tweets locations)...it'll be a sweet 10 minutes of me time (and perhaps your dog too if you share.)

Re: “Wando Shrimp Company

Consistently fresh seafood and cheap prices bring us back to Wando frequently. We have purchased shrimp, oysters, flounder, sea bass, and sheepshead from them, and always enjoyed the meal. The staff is always kind and cheerful. I am glad we have a hidden spot like this in Mt P.

Re: “Magwood Seafood

I saw in the Moultrie News we missed an opportunity to purchase shrimp baskets and benefit local fisherman. Everyone I know in the area would love this opportunity. Please "friend" me or something and I will pass the word along when you host another event like this!!

Re: “Charlie Brown Seafood

Garlic crabs we're delicious. Wish it was a small restaurant where you could sit and enjoy your food. It's still a good place to swing by and pick something up.

Re: “Charlie Brown Seafood

This is an awesome place to run in and grab a bite to eat or pick up some fresh seafood. The cooks are awesome here!!! Shame they don't have a bigger kitchen and more crew, they could be ruling the lowcountry!

Re: “Charleston Spice Company

They changed how good my recipes taste!
My faves are the African 5 Spice & Espresso Steak Rub (I even put this in Pasta Sauce!)

Re: “COAST Brewing Company

I came up with the name 'Porter, Smoked' and now I've been banished to the Commonwealth of Northern Marianas Islands, very far from all that delicious beer. Wish I'd thought of a more creative title for such a heady brew. All they have out here is San Miguel and Red Horse. Maybe I can find some fresh tuba on Guam... I <3 Saipan! Cheers Dave & Jamie

Re: “Earth Fare

BY FAR my favorite grocery store in Charleston. They have the freshest meat and produce in town. I know that anything I buy there is going to be of the best quality.

Re: “ALDI

I don't need Whole Foods prices to buy nutritious food. Maybe some people need their grocery shopping to be "an experience," I would rather spend the money I save at Aldi ( usually $50-70 per week) on real experiences. Aldi is straight forward fresh food for a lot less than any store I've been to. I love hearing people complain about having to "pay a quarter" You get the quarter back when you return your cart. Bring your reusable bags and get ready to save!

Re: “Charlie Brown Seafood

So glad the prices come down on the garlic crabs now that they're in abundance.....also have fresh local shrimp and they are good...nothing like fresh seafood from our coast....the garlic crabs can be messy but are great and enjoyed them very much....

Re: “Striped Pig Distillery

Wonderful space for an event. Went to a Guerrilla Cuisine dinner there a couple of weeks ago and was surprised at how pretty the distillery hardware looks with the right lighting and how warm and comfortable the space was - especially for a warehouse and work site, at that (the bathrooms are a literally shining example). A few strategically placed pieces of art (big works well) and beautifully set tables were all that was needed to transform what would be a cavernous area in the back into a really cool, even elegant, venue. I know others worked hard to make that transformation and I WAS under the influence of some fabulous food, but the end result of GC & others' efforts highlighted the possibilities of the distillery space itself. The Striped Pig people proved very hospitable folks, dedicated to their craft and eager to share the process & results with willing fans. Sampled some powerful but oddly delicious moonshine & a more finished product. It is obvious that a great deal of thought went into making this space a welcoming place to hang out, whether for an event or just a visit.

Re: “Middleton Place

This will be my second time visiting Middleton Gardens and I can't wait. I intend to use Omega Transportation as my ride ( since I can save 10% on a round trip) and I will tour the gardens after the demonstrations. I know the gardens will be beautiful this time of year. And I won't have to fight the traffic, so I am really excited.
