Grits - where to buy it?


I will be visiting Durham, Charleston, Savannah and Athens soon. Last time I was in Savannah I simply couldn't stop eating shrimp and grits and I am thinking of bringing some grits home this time.

So where would a good place to buy grits? What do I have to look for? I will be staying in Mt Pleasant but will have a car. .

Any grocery store will have them. Be sure not to get instant grits-yuk.

If you want to special local grits look at this website for more info:

Most local grocery stores have some good quality grits. Whole Foods in Mt. Pleasant will definitely have good quality, stone ground grits, but so does Piggly Wiggly. In the Pig, the better quality grits are found in the "local foods" section.

Swisstravel - where were some of your favorite places for grits? Curious - since everyone makes them SO differently!

When I was in Charleston years ago, at the open air market, I found the best Grits that had Garlic in them. It was from a vendor. Any idea what they were or is the market still going on?

The Market is still there but the vendors change from time to time.

I have not had grits with garlic in them but do put some garlic in when I make cheese grits.
