Yandle’s Roadside Market
This roadside, warehouse-style stand is no ordinary farmers’ market. It has about everything one would need to stock a kitchen. The family-owned market offers goods like pre-mixed biscuit and pancake packages, milk, eggs, walnuts and a vast array of produce. Don’t worry if you can’t afford the gourmet bacon cheese; a scrumptious, affordable block of cheddar cheese is equally delicious. The Yandle’s staff may be small, but they will help you get the biggest bang for your buck in a calm, quiet atmosphere. Learn more at www.yandlesmarket.com and facebook.com/YandlesMarket

Cayce Farmers’ Market
Perfect for the less chatty shopper, this market runs on an honor system. Farmers display produce on a long table and set out a box for customers’ payments. This unconventional form of business is convenient for anyone with a tight schedule, as the market is open 24 hours a day. Although the selection may seem limited, all the produce is fresh, and only in-season produce is offered. Shop here if you’re low on dough; you can leave with a large bag of any item for only a buck. That’s a deal you won’t find at Aldi, Save-A-Lot or Bi-Lo.
Location: 2329 Charleston Hwy.
Hours: 24 hours, Sunday - Saturday
