Charleston Farmers Market

Charleston Farmers Market

Located in Marion Square in the heart of Historic District in Downtown Charleston, SC, the Charleston Farmers Market is open each Saturday, from March 5th through the end of November, 8:00 AM to 2:00 PM with additional markets held on Sundays during the Piccolo Spoleto Festival in May and June as well as Saturdays and Sundays in December for our Holiday Market. The Charleston Farmers Market is dedicated to the support and advocacy of Lowcountry farmers, growers, prepared/packaged food, artisans, crafters, live performers and community groups and activities. We offer a variety of local produce, plants, herbs and cut flowers as well as breakfast and lunch vendors, live entertainment and an assortment of juried arts and crafts from local artisans. Attracting locals and tourists alike, the CFM is the community connection, bringing together people from all parts of the Lowcountry and beyond. Whether you are a local that frequents the CFM or a tourist visiting for the weekend, we have something for you to enjoy. We greatly appreciate your love & support and we look forward to seeing you in Marion Square at the Charleston Farmers Market!

Fabulon Presents: I Live Here

This show will present a collection of images that define place. Show photos that exemplify the glory of space. Depict that special landscape, real or imaginary, interior or exterior. Capture from where you came or where you now call home. Show where you really live, physically or spiritually. What does it mean to be “from here”? What makes you feel like you belong?

Everybody is so busy rushing from place to place and we spend so much time in traffic looking at the cars around us or sneaking glances at our cell phones. We barely notice the landscape around us. The seasons are changing and we’re gravitating indoors. As the holidays approach, it’s time to reconnect with family and friends. This brings with it a nostalgia for hearth and home. What might you hope to preserve for future memories?
