Charleston Farmer’s Market


Today I got to go to my first Charleston Farmer’s Market. My friend Holly Herrick took me through and introduced me to all kinds of wonderful farmers and producers. I took home a full load of fun things to work with from tomatillos to fresh chorizo. I got a half bushel of those great South Carolina peaches and some stone ground grits from the Colonial Charleston Kitchen.



I had a Vietnamese Five Spice Pork Taco for breakfast






And, the best thing about going to the farmer’s market is what you make for lunch! Two big slices of a “Pineapple” tomato, drizzled with olive oil and sprinkled with smoked salt and fresh ground pepper. Image


 Monday afternoon, James Island has a farmer’s market, so of course I will have to check that out too!

  1. This looks like a nice trip to the farmers market . I love to buy all my fresh produce and fruits from my local market; not only do you have a chance to scoop up some tasty treats, you also have a chance to meet the farmers and learn some great preparation tips from some of them. Our local market also has a few vendors of doggie treats that usually has our Jade drooling over. I love your blog, great pictures.

    • I so agree Marc, it is great that you buy your produce from farmers you know. Eating local is the way to go, even Jade loves it! Thanks for stopping by.

      • It also doesn’t hurt that there are enticing local desserts for humans as well. I usually partake in a weekly blueberry muffin, although I changed it up for a huge cinnamon roll this past weekend. Variety is the spice of life.
