Default Organic grocery in Summerville?

Hi, I currently live in Lexington, SC and thinking of moving to Summerville to be closer to the beach and my work is in Orangeburg. I'm a health nut and thankfully, there's 14 Carrots store in Lexington where I can buy my organic vegetables, grass-fed beef, raw milk, unfiltered honey, organic miso, and unpasteurized saurkraut.

I've googled for stores like this in Summerville, but cannot find one. Would I have to drive all the way to Charleston to find a store like this? Is there a store like 14 Carrots near Summerville? Thanks!

We eat the same, and I'm interested in this thread as well. I've been told the Eare Fare in Charleston is very good, and there is a Whole Foods in Mt. P.

We just recently moved here from Lancaster, PA and really miss the raw milk at $3.00 per gallon (makes the BEST yogurt you have ever tasted.....). Would love to find more in the Summerville area too. Heard of one guy selling it for $7/gal at the farmers market. I'd be better off buying my own cow.

Oh wow, hearing y'all talk I may have to move OUT of SC! I'm with you guys on the organic/local food. You will have to get a mish mash of different places though- As mentioned Earth Fare and Whole Foods. Also Publix supermarkets have organic produce as well.
With regards to produce, a friend and I take part in a CSA out at Wadmawlaw Island.
Through their website, you can get a link for locally raised grass fed beef from another farmer.
Ambrose Family Farm

@green65- is raw milk unpasteurized? My grandfather (who has passed on many years now) had cows and such, and getting yogurt from fresh cows milk is the most delicious thing ever (granted I always added brown sugar to it as a child).

I was riding on Bacon's Bridge Road today and briefly saw a sign for raw milk in front of a small business. I didn't have time to look for the name, but it was not too from the Galleria and on the same side of the road.

Farmer's Market does not automatically mean organic.

there is a brand new all natural organic shop on Central Ave in S'Ville, I passed by it today... looks like they just moved in, I don't remember seeing it before

if your are traveling out of summerville it'll be on your left not too far from the Food Lion

and there's several farmers markets all over here where you can buy fresh locally grown veggies, even free range chickens n beef not too far from here too

I shopped at the Gods Green Acre for a few things a month or 2 ago. According to their website they just moved to the Central Ave. location. I saw a truck for an organic farm pull up as I was leaving. Give them a call and ask about it.
