Out on Johns Island, the Stono Farm Market is the outlet for produce from the Ambrose Family Farm. At this humble little outpost, you can find fresh tomatoes, local shrimp, or tomato pie (highly recommended). Or you can take a seat and order yourself a real country dinner, the kind our grandma used to make and serve every day at noon (supper's at night, Yankees). A meat (roast pork, roast beef, barbecue, crab cakes) can be paired with two sides (tomato pie, squash casserole, collards, butter beans, green beans, mashed potatoes, mac and cheese, rice and gravy, Waldorf salad, cole slaw, garden salad, potato salad, cucumber-tomato-onion salad) for $8.95. This is as fresh and local as it gets.
