1. Re: best place to buy groceries and adult beverage on the island

There is currently no grocery store on the island. The closest one will be the Piggly Wiggly on the IOP Connector. Avoid the liquor store next door... their prices are very high and often "out of stock" of nearly everything. They may not still be in business by the time you are here. There is a liquor store on the island, it's quite small and again, the prices are high. There is one in the Sweetgrass Shopping Center (at the corner of Hwy 17 and the IOP Connector). For bargain prices there is a large liquor store on Coleman Blvd in Mt. Pleasant called Bottles.

if you hop on 17 going towards charleston you'll have your pick of grocery stores, Mt Pleasant is LOADED with them.

Also, near the base of the bridge is a Whole Foods and its fantastic.

There's a Trader Joe's near Whole Foods as well.

If you go to IOP by way of Ben Sawyer in Mt P, there's a Pig, Publix and BiLo on the way. Bradley's Liquors is next to BiLo, and Stack's Coastal Kitchen is a feww doors down from them. Stack's has great cooked items to carry out if you don't want to cook while on vacay .

Not sure when you are coming, but they are building a Newton Farms store on the island. Not really a grocery store but has upscale products made by the owners of the Piggly Wiggly chain.

Jams, ice cream, etc

Heard that Newton Farms won't be open until 2014. They've got finish current new construction, move the other shops to the new section, then gut and reconstruct current building. Newton Farms is a regular grocery store... just a high-end one.

Newton Farms is like a glorified convenience store, though, I must say, I do enjoy visiting.

They will have lots of items that the vacationer will enjoy, with a very nice prepared foods counter, a deli with a wide variety of special cheeses, a bakery with lots of choices, most of which may be purchased by the individual piece and a good meat counter.

I won't fool you, they are a little more costly, but we have not been unhappy with any of our purchases from Pig Newton (it's run by the same folks as The Pig).
