For the Love of Produce!

Here at Mermaid Cottages, we are all about being green and buying local when we can. Davis Produce on Highway 80 just happens to be the best of both, and we are so excited to share them with our guests!

Davis Produce is the “Home of the Killer Tomato” and has the best produce in the area as far as we are concerned (and we aren’t the only ones who think so)! For 17 years, Randy and Sherry Davis have offered fresh, local goodness to their customers. Local farmers bring a variety of seasonal fruits and vegetables daily. No trip to the beach is complete without some yummy hot boiled or roasted peanuts and they have a full line of jams, jellies, Vidalia Onion Dressing, and local honey, too! Davis Produce is even a favorite of Paula Deen! All this and more is why we want to share our favorite not-so-secret local shop with each and every one of our guests.

Aren't they beautiful? Mermaid Renee did a wonderful job!

Our own Mermaid Renee has placed empty market baskets in each cottage. These baskets are just waiting for you to fill them with fruit and veggie treasures when you visit Davis Produce! Each of our cottages has a fully equipped kitchen for enjoying cooking at home…and there is nothing better than local produce!

When you take these special Mermaid Cottage market baskets to Davis Produce, you’ll get $5 off of any purchase of $20 or more. You can stock up for your entire stay! Many thanks to Davis Produce for that, and to Mermaid Renee for all her hard work on these fabulous baskets; we just know they will be put to good use!

So, where is this produce haven? Davis Produce is located at 7755 Hwy 80 East on the way to Savannah. It’s just a 12 minute trip from the island! To get there from Tybee, take US 80 toward Savannah.  After the Bull River Bridge, take a left at the second traffic light at Quarterman Drive. Davis Produce is to the left of the gas station.

Davis Produce is just a hop, skip, and a jump up the road!

Now of course, Mermaid Cottages guest or not, we want you to stop by and visit the fabulous people at Davis Produce! They are opened Monday through Saturday, 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Sunday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Stop by and browse their offerings, even if you are just coming out to Tybee for the day. You can also find them on Facebook, and they even have a group to join. Either way, it’s worth the trip! Happy shopping!

Bring your Mermaid Cottages market basket and fill it with local, yummy produce!
