Eat Local Month Supporter: Limehouse Produce
May 3, 2017
Lowcountry Local First is thrilled to once again have Limehouse Produce as the presenting sponsor for Eat Local Month. Since they started their business in 1945, Limehouse has continuously gone the extra mile in sourcing and delivering fresh, local produce throughout the Lowcountry.
One of the ways they are recently reached out to the local community is through their Berry Creative Campaign. They asked Charleston area elementary schools to submit their best artwork and creative projects promoting strawberries. The winning school receives 50lbs of fresh strawberries.
“Lowcountry Local First’s Eat Local Month is the perfect opportunity for Limehouse Produce to recognize all of the tremendous growers and producers in the Lowcountry and the rest of our state,” says Andrea Limehouse, Vice President of Limehouse Produce. “We have been in the business of bringing fresh local produce to Charleston eaters for more than 70 years and Limehouse helps support nearly 3 dozen local producers during our local growing season. LLF and Eat Local Month have enhanced the opportunities for our growers and helped to make Charleston an important place on the locavore map. We are proud to be a part of it.”
