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 spends most of her time tending to her raw cow’s milk operation. The milk is rich and creamy and she sells the raw milk and grass-fed beef every week at the Charleston Farmers Market. You can also find Albers’ milk at the Boone Hall Farm Market, The Glass Onion, Stono Market, Family of Messiah Church and James Family Chiropractic in Summerville; and at farmers markets in West Ashley, James Island, and downtown. You can buy Green Grocer beef right from the Rosebank Plantation farm. When you turn onto Rosebank Plantation Road, “just look for the milk sign,” Albers says.
