McClellanville Land & Sea Market
McClellanville, South Carolina, is a rural fishing village situated in an area lacking food access, so in the summer of 2017 the Land & Sea Market launched to provide locals with a point to buy the fresh food already being cultivated around them. Our market is now much more then just farmers market for locals. This community gathering hub has since transformed into a place for folks to reconnect with the village roots of supporting their neighbors and sustaining off our areas offerings.
Every Saturday, May 11th through August 31st, the Land and Sea Market meets 'Under the Oaks' in McClellanville. Our L&S market family is a welcoming group of farmers, growers, makers and bakers, and we hope you join us too.
Beautiful day, beautiful colors and super fresh produce were present today at the Georgetown Farmers Market on 122 Screven Street, the parking lot across from the court house.
And lots of friendly faces, too.
Hayward's Vegetables, Millgrove Farms and Smith's Plants & Veggies were stacked with great produce to offer customers. Millgrove Farms had Happy Cow Creamery cheeses available, too.
The Farmers Market will grow with vendors through the season, open each Saturday from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m., ending October 26th.
A weather-perfect day brought out hundreds of people to this year's Taste at Pawleys, but the flavors kept them inside to gather up the delightful offering from many area restaurants.
We arrived quite early to get a great parking space. They fill up rather quickly as time draws near to doors being opened. So, the fold-up chairs came out, found a tree next to the pond at Precious Blood of Christ Roman Catholic Church and sat as the superstars of our restaurant industry pulled in.
Yeah, consider us chef groupies.
Last year was our first time attending the annual event. Today's was the 11th time it's been held. We posted earlier the line-up of restaurants and their offerings. People obviously saw it because we could hear them speaking amongst themselves as they filed, game planning their first table to pounce on.
Admission was $5 and tickets were sold in one-dollar increments. Tastings were between one to three tickets and many restaurants had more tasting than what was advertised. So, there was plenty of flavor for the crowd to feast on.
The event benefits Father Pat's Lunch Kitchen. They serve meals to people in need in the community. They were also part of the event, serving up an awesome Fruits of the Sea Pasta dish.
The beauty of this event is of course the food and the charity, however, the shining light is and always will be the great fellowship of people. Smiling faces galore, bright as the sun shining through the gym windows.
Some of the must-try dishes overheard by folks were Rustic Table's Seafood Pot Pie, Southern Comforts, Southern Dining & Seafood Shack's Caramel Apple Pie, Sol Cocina Mexicana's Ahi Tuna Ceviche, Bagel Cafe's Strawberry Walnut Salad with Grilled Chicken and SoCo Baja Grille's Sweet Chili Chicken Lime Tacos.
Take a look below at the gallery of photos from the event.
Charleston, S.C.- Charleston Wine + Food reported an economic impact of $18.6 million over the course of the five-day annual festival, up from $15.3 million in 2018. This impact number, derived by a third party study from the College of Charleston Office of Tourism Analysis, is the largest to-date.
“We couldn't be more happy and proud of this year's results. We welcomed nearly 26,000 guests and generated a measured economic impact of $18.6 million,” says Gillian Zettler, Executive Director for Charleston Wine + Food. “It's always exciting to see people respond positively to our programming and have that excitement translate into attendance and our largest economic impact to date. The results are a great achievement for our community.”
Charleston Wine + Food is renowned for offering creative, dynamic, and ever-changing programming that features top winemakers, chefs, culinary professionals, artists, and experts from around the globe that come together annually in March to produce a wine + food festival that rivals the very best of its kind. The 2019 festival was no exception, featuring 128 events across the greater Charleston area. “Over the course of this five day festival we are able to use food to bring people together, create new memories, and offer an experience that warms your belly and your heart, says Zettler.”
Additionally, the 2019 festival saw an uptick in local ticket buyers. Approximately 57% of attendees are local to the greater Charleston area. Visitors to Charleston and the festival continue to report Charleston Wine + Food as the main reason for their visit, and indicate that they plan to return to Charleston within the next 3 years. “I think the increase in local attendance is largely attributed to the diversity of our programming + experiences and the effort the organization has made since my time here to create more accessible price points,” says Zettler. This year’s ticket prices started at $65 and nearly 30 events on the schedule were under $100.
In addition to the economic impact that Charleston Wine + Food’s annual festival creates, the organization has a multifaceted partnership with One80 Place Training and the College of Charleston. At this year’s Opening Ceremony, two College of Charleston students were presented with multi-year scholarships and One80 Place Training with a financial contribution of $40,000. Since inception, Charleston Wine + Food has contributed more than $500,000 to organizations or persons that directly benefit the Lowcountry’s local foodway initiatives and strengthen our local community.
“As we enter our 15th year, we are already knee deep in planning the 2020 festival and we look forward to continuing to find new ways to inspire people to enjoy Charleston and our culinary + hospitality community,” says Zettler.

Chef Adam Kirby. Chef Danny Smith. Chef Paul Delatte. They've done it. Who will be next?
I'm talking about Cooking with Friends, a monthly event featuring a local chef cooking for guests at Get Carried Away's Cypress Room.
The setting has an intimate feel, but business casual is fitting. The tastes, however, are mind blowing.
The event benefits Friendship Place, a Christian organization working to provide a hand-up for people to meet their basic needs. For more than 19 years, they have fed the hungry, sheltered the homeless and worked to creatively and cost-effectively meet the unmet needs of the citizens of Georgetown county.
And the people love the chef offering. All three events so far have sold out in advance.
Here's a little more on Cooking with Friends.
Nothing brings a community together like cooking. Whether you’re watching, preparing, or enjoying the delicious end result, cooking is something that’s done best with friends. Enjoy old and new friends in a fun, relaxed setting, learning how to create dishes from top local chefs at The Cypress Room at Get Carried Away.

MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. – The Myrtle Beach Area Hospitality Association will host its 13th Annual Trio Dinner on Monday, April 1, 2019, at the Sheraton Myrtle Beach Convention Center Hotel, the host sponsor. It will start at 6:30 p.m.
The Trio Dinner is the culmination of a culinary arts mentorship program that pairs a professional chef with two students, one in high school and one in college. Each trio will showcase its unique cuisine at the Trio Dinner. Along with excellent fare, the event includes hors d’oeuvres by Grand Strand Provisions, a cocktail bar, live entertainment with U-N-I Jazz and a silent auction benefiting hospitality educational programming.
High school students participating in the mentorship program are from the Academy for Technology and Academics. This magnet school receives students from throughout Horry County, who have an opportunity to sample hospitality courses including culinary arts in the middle and early high school years. The college students completing the trio are from the International Culinary Institute of Myrtle Beach at Horry-Georgetown Technical College.
The Trio Dinner’s purpose is to support and promote the hospitality industry’s culinary arts profession and to give each student real-world experience in creating an original dish with the guidance of an executive chef. This event is very important to the Grand Strand culinary arts programs. A portion of the proceeds of the event go to MBAHA scholarship funds for Hospitality and Culinary education in our local institutions.
In addition to creating wonderful dishes and working with students, chefs will have the opportunity to enter one dish to be judged for the “Best Dish” and “People’s Choice” awards. Knowing chefs are as competitive as they are creative, this allows participating chefs to show off their skills and be recognized for it. We will have a combination of celebrity chef judges and local American Culinary Federation judges for the event.
