With Beaufort’s ‘roots’ deeply entrenched in the agricultural industry, it’s only natural that there would be several U Pick Farms and community Farmer’s Markets throughout the area with plenty of fresh local Beaufort tomatoes, SC peaches, local watermelon, lots of other produce and specialty items in constant abundance. Beaufort embraces it’s farmers and the community supports its farmers and local markets. For BUSHELS of great photos of our local farmer’s markets and all of the fresh local produce, seafood, community fun and entertainment that can be found at them, please visit our Photo Gallery this upcoming season.
