Boone Hall Farms

Boone Hall Farms is a local farmers' market located across from Boone Hall Plantation.  Read about the plantation's history here.  There is a cafe inside the store and the market specializes in locally grown South Carolina produce.  

Check out the cafe's menu.

Not hungry for a full meal?  Grab a homeade ice cream cone while you shop.

You can even find raw milk here and apparently it is difficult to keep on the shelves. 
I don't find the flavor to be different from pasteurized milk but my husband definitely thinks it differs.

If you want to get your men to help out more with the groceries, send them here.  The cafe is located inside the store, so you may have a beer while you shop for your local foods.  

While we were headed out the door, this warm homemade goodness rolled by.  That is one big advertisement, fresh out of the oven tomato pie.  Southern tomato pie is not the same as Northern pizza pie without cheese, this has tons of yummy cheese.  The tomato pie ingredients include tomatoes, mayonnaise, peppers, onion, and cheese all on top of a pie crust.  It's pretty amazing. 

Meet Savannah and Morgan, two lovely girls who helped check us out.

I asked Mark to take a few more pictures of the outside of Boone Hall Farms.  This was what he took...

We headed to Boone Hall Plantation to take a walk around.  The plantation closes at 5 PM and so we arrived a little too late at 4PM for a tour.  We turned around and will save it for another day.  Boone Hall is known for their live oak tree lined driveway, the trees were planted in 1743.  The entrance becomes more and more enchanting as you continue through.  I only have a picture at the very beginning so we will save you a little to see for yourself.  Here is the entrance...

So instead of a tour at Boone Hall Plantation we headed to Magnolia Cemetery in North Charleston.  It is free to all visitors and it is quite the historic cemetery.  There was a ghost walk in the cemetery recently, check out their events here.

There was a little surprise left over after I childishly played around on the bridge rails.  A little bird may have taken a seat on the same rail earlier that day...

Magnolia Cemetery is such a beautiful place to visit here in Charleston.  Once I returned home and spoke with my mother, I quickly learned my great-aunt, my grandfather's sister, is buried here.  I can't wait to go back and locate her headstone.
