Taste the Flavors on Saturdays

Taste the Flavors on Saturdays

Every Saturday, a colorful village springs up in Marion Square, the nearly seven-acre park siting at the crossroads between uptown and downtown Charleston. Scores of farmers bring their crops to town for the wildly popular farmers market, which lasts from 8 a.m. – 2 p.m.

Tables laden with farm fresh eggs, watermelons, hot-house herbs, berries, tomatoes, and much, much more encircle the park. Locally harvested honey, certified organic jellies and jams, grass-fed beef, cut flowers, and fresh shrimp often sell out quickly.

For visitors on vacation who have no need to stock a pantry or refrigerator, the artists’ booths are especially popular, particularly for people on the hunt for a handmade souvenir. Handmade goat milk soap, Rewined candles, furniture and decorative elements made from reclaimed wood, hand-block hats, forged metal jewelry, and original paintings are just a some of the treasures in store at the Saturday market.
