Every Friday morning from 8am till 1pm, I have the chance to buy fresh local tomatoes, eggs, bread and grab lunch at our local farmer’s market.
Located at Honey Horn (home to Coastal Discovery Museum) on the north end of the Island, this free family activity is a great place to take Gray to let him run free and see the Marsh Tacky horses.
My favorite market of the year is coming up this Friday, where I can shop for local gifts and have a chance for Gray to see Santa! Coastal Discovery Museum will also be hosting a “meet the authors” and taste of the Lowcountry on Friday…..and then on Saturday, we will head back to the museum for a true Hilton Head Island kid’s craft day of painting and fun, creating gifts for the grandparents!
The Farmer’s Market at Honey Horn will feature holiday gifts like local books, Gullah baskets (sweetgrass baskets), shell & driftwood trees, pottery, local soaps, jewelry, ornaments & wood bowls and more. Santa will be making an appearance from 10-noon, so bring your little ones and your camera for a great photo opportunity set in a Lowcountry background!
Also on Friday from 10-2 just a few steps away at the Coastal Discovery Museum, you can find local Hilton Head authors like Pat Branning of Shrimp, Collards & Grits and sample local fare for sale – gumbo, palmetto rice & their own honey horn honey. What a great way to complete your Christmas gift list! Click here for a list of authors!
On Saturday, December 8th, Coastal Discovery Museum will host a holiday craft fare from 1-3. Just $7 per child, kids will have the opportunity to build holiday crafts using locally found native materials (think trees & oyster shells), what a great way to create a gift for the grandparents!

I hope you enjoy the holidays on Hilton Head and enjoy gifting these local products!
With Love From The Lowcountry,
