I’m one lucky fox! Right across the street from my hotel is one of the nation’s best Farmers Market. I always start my Saturdays with a freshly made breakfast crepe, pastry and gourmet coffee. Then, under the shade of the beautiful crepe myrtles, I help shop for the freshest local produce, herbs, plants, cut flowers, shrimp and prepared foods.

Supporting our local farmers is very important to me and my co-workers here at the Francis Marion. In fact, The Swamp Fox Restaurant & Bar features a monthly menu served daily and made predominantly with locally sourced or regional fresh products. I’m excited about this month’s menu featuring Atlantic coast Red Snapper served on a delicious grit cake, along with an heirloom tomato and arugula salad with lemon vinaigrette. The featured appetizer is light and crispy fried zucchini with marinated oyster mushrooms and a sweet onion sour cream accompaniment. Wow…I hope I have room for the lemon blueberry creamy cheesecake. Dessert always makes me sweeter. And Chef Steve Klatt is one of my best buddies at the hotel! He does a fabulous job each month utilizing all the local and regional produce the South has to offer!
