Farmers Markets in Charleston


One of our favorite things to do as a family in Charleston is go to the farmers market.  We love picking up fresh vegetables, fruit, meat and a few special treats each week.  Farmer's markets are a great way to get kids excited about eating healthy food by showing them the rainbow of colors and allowing them to try fresh samples.  Our beautiful city does not disappoint with an amazing selection of local markets to stroll.  Local produce, specialty items, hand-crafted wares, live music and tasty treats are just some of the gems that you will find.  The Low Country has a different market for almost every day of the week so why not make it a point to support local and visit them all!
