Who doesn’t love fresh berries when the weather gets warm, especially kids?! Not only is it the perfect snack, but berries are also super healthy and a great way for our little ones to keep hydrated during those hot summer days. Thankfully, Charleston and the surrounding area hosts great temperatures for growing berries. Here is your local guide to berry picking and any information needed. Some of these are U-Pick farms, and others are local markets.
