Donald and Irene Willey, married January 1962, began a roadside stand in the mid-70's located in Townsend, Delaware. With only an airline baggage cart and tomatoes from Mom's garden - Willey Farms began. Wanting a legacy to pass on to their children, Don and Irene worked tirelessly, children in tow, to become 'Delaware's Finest (and largest) Farm Market. Now owned and managed by the Willey children, new farmers markets have been established in lower Delaware and Maryland.
Developing a love for South Carolina during many produce runs with her Mom and Dad - tomatoes from Beaufort, corn from Orangeburg, and melons from Statesboro, Georgia just over the line - youngest daughter, Rachel, vowed to relocate right after college. Establishing herself and learning the landscape, Rachel and husband Mike, settled in a little town called Dorchester, west of historic Charleston.
Officially opening June of 2019, Ray O Sunshine offers local produce, pickled delights, jams & jellies, savory pies, hanging baskets & bedding plants, along with gifts and garden items - this market is a sweet little gem right off of highway 78 in Dorchester, South Carolina - minutes from Saint George, Ridgeville, and Summerville!
Ray O Sunshine offers SO many eclectic goodies, sure to please!
We have fresh seasonal produce such as local sweet corn, yellow squash, local berries, and of course PEACHES! We carry pickled okra, chow chow, bread & butter pickles, and pickled beets. Be sure to pick up some local apple butter, plus strawberry, blackberry, & peach preserves. Savory pies are also VERY popular - tomato and squash pies plus beautiful crustless quiches. Local ice cream is also a crowd favorite!
