The Charleston Farmers Market is produced by the City of Charleston Office of Cultural Affairs and was ranked by Travel + Leisure Magazine as one of the top 10 Best Farmers Markets in the Nation. It takes place every Saturday from 8:00AM to 1:00PM from April through November in downtown Charleston's Marion Square. It's a great place to shop local, people watch and grab a quick bite while supporting Lowcountry farmers, growers, artisans and live performers.
Additional markets are held on Sundays during the Piccolo Spoleto Festival in May and June, as well as Saturdays and Sundays in December for the festive Holiday Market.
The 2021 edition of the Charleston Farmer's Market kicks off on April 10th. Due to the pandemic, it's format has been tweaked to be an "essentials-only" market. You'll be able to find plenty of local growers and farmers, vendors of packaged food, along with artisans and craft vendors. Entertainment and prepared food vendors will return after things get back to normal.
You're asked to wear masks and practice safe social distancing. Sanitation stations and signage will be placed around to help keep everyone safe and healthy.
As for parking, you can find garages with plenty of shade at 399 King Street (right across the street), as well as 35 John Street and 73 Mary Street. All are within easy walking distance of Marion Square.
