Spring has finally arrived and farmers in South Carolina are preparing for a booming season. The South Carolina Farmer's Market is finally getting in all of their most popular fresh produce.

Vendor Ernest Mezyck is excited about the new products coming in and says staying stocked up on fresh favorites is key to success.

"If it ain't no good then I don't mess with it…because if I'm eating it then you can be sure it will be good. And if I can't grow it myself, I will go get it from Florida," he said.

Produce vendor William Yandle has a different way of attracting customers, one that mimics the nation-wide trend of eating healthy.

"We've found that more and more people are going away from decorating their houses with shrubbery and now they're decorating with plants that they can actually eat off of, especially considering the economy, people want to plant something they can eat off of," he said.

Yandle sells all types of trees and plants from tomato, pepper, peach, and apple but says the most popular over the last few years has definitely been blueberry.

Yandle and Mezyck agree, while you're waiting for your own tree to produce fruit, you can bet that at this time of the year, the South Carolina Farmer's Market is sure to have your favorites fresh off the plant.
