Marion Square Farmer's Market

The Charleston Farmer's Market in Marion Square runs every Saturday from April-December. Located in the heart of the peninsula, local farmers haul goods all the way from Johns and Wadmalaw Islands and the surrounding areas. The market bustles with tourists and locals alike, especially this time of year. Lowcountry craftsmen and artisans create little shops within their tents and a litany of food vendors produce an array of choices including crepes, gyros, paninis, freshly squeezed lemonade and handmade fresh pastas. Jewelry makers, photographers, carpenters, ironworkers, glass blowers, potters, sweetgrass basket makers set up shop, all of whom would consider themselves Charlestonians.
