The trees and plants are blooming, there is pollen in the air…and the farmers are getting ready bring their produce to stands in the Myrtle Beach area.
One group that supplies fresh vegetables and fruit is the Waccamaw Market Cooperative (WMC), certifies food and agricultural products grown or raised on farms in the Pee Dee Region. Displayed with food and farm products, the Waccamaw Grown label, a trademark of the WMC, helps consumers, retailers, and wholesalers better distinguish and identify local agricultural products.
Most of the WMC stands are set to open in May with the exception of the farm in Loris, which plans to open April 14 and the CCU Farmers Market on the Prince Lawn on the campus of CCU from 10 am to 2 pm on April 24th.
