Shallotte is easy to navigate. Most of the businesses and restaurants are right on Business 17, the main street. This town got its name in a round-a-bout way. A man traveling by ferry came across an undiscovered river and named it the Charlotte River. Eventually it came to be known as the Shallotte River and the town developed around it. Shallotte has developed into a “big” small town drawing people in from miles around. The current population is just 4000 but people come from all over Brunswick County to do their shopping and to get a bite to eat. It’s just 10 minutes to Holden Beach, Ocean Isle Beach, and Sunset Beach so the summer gets busy. One local business makes it mark by offering fresh produce from its own farms (250 acres which has been in the family over 200 years) and from farms across North and South Carolina. Holden Brothers Farm Market is on Highway 17 next to town. They are famous for offering “pick your own strawberries and tomatoes.” Call in advance to see what’s in season.
