Charleston Farmers Market Nov 27, 2008
A great way to spend your Saturday morning in Charleston is visiting the Farmers Market in Marion Square (on Calhoun Street between Meeting & King). Marion Square is a pretty park located in the heart of Charleston’s Historic Downtown where you can experience a lot of history in the many museums and gorgeous 18th century homesteads. The Farmers Market has the typical mix of stands: fresh vegetables, herbs, cut flowers, local art and some decent food booths. Despite there being a bunch of top notch dining establishments for lunch and dinner meals in Charleston, we didn’t discover a happening breakfast joint.
The Farmers Market compensates for this oversight (at least on Saturday mornings) by offering a great selection of quality local breakfast food. There is plenty of seating available, so a great place to start your day! There were a few interesting art booths, though much was your standard trinkets and trash venues. That said, we still enjoyed brisk conversations with the locals working the booths and they embodied the southern graciousness you come to expect in the South.
A relaxed way to kick off your weekend in Charleston and the Square affords a lot of lawn space if you need to stretch your legs a bit.
