Charleston Farmers Market

IMG_0956

There is no question that Charleston, South Carolina is getting a ton of national attention.  No matter where I go, when I mention I am from South Carolina, the usual response is – “oh wow, are you from Charleston?  I have heard it is amazing there!” I grew up in Columbia, which is not too far, but I did have the opportunity to live in Charleston for a year right before I moved to Atlanta and I fell in love with it.

With a laid-back atmosphere, a walkable downtown, beaches almost a stone’s throw away everywhere you turn, and an incredibly innovative restaurant scene that is growing at an exponential speed, it is definitely a city that should be on your radar.  If you do find yourself in Charleston, as I did this past weekend for a very dear childhood friend’s wedding, you must stop by the Charleston Farmers Market in Marion Square on Saturday morning.

Not only is the produce fresh, local and gorgeous, but the food truck/stand situation is out of control.  You could definitely have a delicious brunch there on the go if you don’t want to do the whole sit-down restaurant thing.  Here are some highlights from this past Saturday…you may find yourself booking a flight (or jumping in the car) to get to Charleston ASAP.
