farmers markets

Farmers markets are fun! The “food truck” movement has hit Charleston hard which means delicious food from a truck while you load up on your week’s veggies, fruit, meat, jellies, and so much more. In the Charleston area, we are so fortunate to have so many farmers markets to choose from, including some mobile ones!
