From May to October, those seeking fresh vegetables, fruits, foods prepared by area cooks and creations by area artisans flock to the Farmer’s Market in Conway on Saturday mornings.
The market’s wares are part of the Waccamaw Grown program of the Waccamaw Market Cooperative. Farmers in the program certify that their products have been grown or raised on farms in the Pee Dee region.
The program, which also includes the North Myrtle Beach, Surfside Beach, Conway Medical Center and DeVille Street markets, is operated under the guidance of the Clemson Cooperative Extension, according to the program’s website, www.waccamawmarkets.org.
Another highlight of the Conway market is the table staffed each week by a master gardener certified by the Clemson extension service who is there to answer questions from aspiring gardeners and anyone curious about the region’s produce.
