Three Sisters Essentials is proud to be a certified roadside market with the South Carolina Department of Agriculture. According to the SC Agriculture website, "The South Carolina Department of Agriculture’s Certified Roadside Market Program was established in 1972, the first official roadside market program in the state. Because they must meet certain standards, we are confident that the roadside markets in the program are reputable and offer a good supply of South Carolina farm products. South Carolina farmers are constantly looking for new ways to market their products and make their farms more profitable. At the same time, they want others to take an interest in the origin of their food and in those who spend their lifetime producing it."
Three Sisters Essentials partners with South Carolina farmers, crafters and artisans to provide the very best to our local community. We hope you'll stop by to experience these incredible offerings made possible by our neighbors --- locals supporting locals!
Hi Friends! We founded Three Sisters Essentials after years of dreaming of a way to bring our love of nature and sustainable living into a market format in our beloved hometown of Camden, South Carolina. Being the fourth generation of a large family, we were inspired by summers of shelling butterbeans and shucking corn under the oak canopy in our grandparents’ front yard - hence, the tree in our logo! After earning our keep helping with the vegetables, we were rewarded with a day on Lake Wateree fishing, tubing, skiing, and countless half-bags of potato chips --- please ask us about this story haha! These days instilled our love of the outdoors and were the cornerstone of our childhood.
Those sweet memories were brought back to life when we became South Carolina Master Naturalists, thereby continuing our journey to learn more about all the cool things we see in nature, why they are here and how they all work together. Being a Master Naturalist is about citizen science and sharing knowledge with others in a relatable and beneficial way, while also having fun in nature! This brought about the idea of helping others learn about sustainable living practices in our own community.READ MORE
