Greetings…..Welcome to Solely Southern Specialties. I am Martha Hawkins the founder of this quaint, rustic store located by the seashore on picturesque Saint Simons Island in southern Georgia.


After many years of teaching and traveling in the summers, I established my store based on my favorite passions…exploring, talking to people, and tasting local cuisine.


Solely Southern Specialties was born and dedicated to humble farmers, like my grandfather, who endlessly sacrificed his time to provide genuine homegrown local produce seven days a week through World War II and beyond.


With Solely Southern Specialties, you can enjoy uniquely crafted, small town Southern flavors and hand crafted gifts that can not be found in large grocery stores or in many other parts of the country.
