Farmer's Market/fresh produce/fresh shrmip

Where is the best place for fresh produce? I know there are many grocery stores around but I am not a local so I do not know how threy stack up for produce. Also, are there any farmer's markets around? And lastly, where can I get shrimp? We are going to give the shrimp boil idea a try in our hotel :)

(We'll be staying near 6500 N. Mrytle Beach but are willing to drive)

When we were down in the summer there was a man selling I believe fruit from out of his truck on a street corner of 17 business. Right near where you are staying if my memory serves me correct.

Try Mr Fish down around 30 something and 17 for your shrimp.

Here's a cut/paste on the Farmers Market in downtown Myrtle, please call to verify the info is still accurate as this was from May:

Myrtle's Market 843-457-5618

9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m., Wednesday, Friday and Saturday

Mr. Joe White Avenue at Oak Street

Here's a quick list of what's typically available, when in season...

Beans, beets, cabbage, corn, cucumbers, eggplant, turnip greens, lettuce, okra, onions, peanuts, bell peppers, potatoes, summer squash, tomatoes, turnips, zucchini, apples, cantaloupe, peaches, blueberries, strawberries, watermelon, flounder, shrimp, goat cheese, carrot cake, annuals, perennials, bedding plants, barbeque sauces, maple syrup, honey, jams and jellies, molasses and homemade products

Mr Fish is at 34th Ave N and Kings Hiway (Rte 17). Great little restaurant/market with varying seafood specials, but shrimp is always available.

If your going out and about for sightseeing, head down to Georgetown and at the docks on Front St there are 2 places to buy shrimp on the cheap, it's like $6 lb, I buy 20 lbs or so at a time and freeze them.

The guys selling on the side of the road have a mix of sizes I have never been happy with these guys, I like ex. lg., there is a guy just up the street on 707 across from Socastee High who has been selling there for years out of his pickup, but he also mixes the sizes up and that is not what I am looking for.

Glad your trying out my low country boil, I hope you go out to eat a number of times also, help our economy out :)
