It looks like I am being transferred with my job January to Myrtle Beach and although I spent time there as a kid (25 years ago!) and my brother lived there about ten years ago, I am trying to find out some information about the area, schools etc. I saw there is a farmers market, and a couple of CSA's, but is there any type of food co-op? I also saw there are a couple of natural foods stores but no whole foods etc, do most of the local grocers carry organic/vegan friendly foods? My children are school aged and I did see there was a charter school that goes through 8th grade but wasn't sure if there accept new students yearly. Are the local schools decent?
We are a vegan family and currently buy about 90% of our groceries from our local organic co-op and farmers market. We dont vax, hardly ever actually even go to doctors, are environmental, and try to do as much from scratch. My husband is an artist and is also interested in learning if there is an art scene in Myrtle Beach. We also love craft beer and wine and he is researching starting homebrewing. I haven't found too much in my research to say the MB is overly alternative but would love to hear from locals about what they know.
