Everything You Need to Know about Rosebank Farms

The Rosebank Farms produce stand is an icon to residents and visitors of Kiawah and Seabrook islands. It’s the perfect place to stop for fresh produce, packaged goods, and fresh flowers, as well as local artwork and crafts. Owned and operated by farmer Sidi Limehouse, an icon himself, a visit to this farm stand is a must during your Kiawah stay with Pam Harrington Exclusives!

Take a Trip to Rosebank Farms

Open from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. 7 days a week from April through December, Rosebank Farms is known for their amazing bargains on fruits and veggies, most of which Sidi grows on his 75-acre farm. In addition to delicious produce, Rosebank Farms sells a variety of goods including fresh-caught seafood, grits, honey, eggs, and local cheese. You’ll also find sweetgrass baskets and paintings made by area artists.

Visitors can stop by the stand to catch a glimpse of Sidi himself, who has been running the stand for more than 20 years, as well as his long-time partner Louise Bennett. Ms. Bennett is a retired schoolteacher who tends to the seeds and loves to share recipes and farm stories with customers.

 

Visit the Johns Island Farmers Market

Guests will also find produce from Rosebank Farms at the Johns Island Farmers Market on Maybank Highway. Offered every Saturday from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., the market features organic fruits and vegetables, other local food products, fresh flowers, and vendors selling authentic Lowcountry items. Get a bite to eat from a food truck and peruse a wide variety of goods like fresh pasta, spices, handcrafted candles, olive oil, jewelry, and much more.

 

What’s in Season?

Unlike other regions in the United States, the Lowcountry of South Carolina has a unique climate that allows farmers to grow an abundance of fresh produce throughout the year. Visiting Kiawah Island in the summer? Expect to find juicy peaches, zucchini, melons, tomatoes, and sweet corn in season. The fall is the best season for crisp apples, grapes, pecans, and sweet potatoes. The Lowcountry also has crops that flourish all year long including beets, parsley, cilantro, leeks, and many leafy greens. No matter what season you visit, you’re guaranteed to find something delicious!
