Due to the ongoing situation related to COVID-19 in South Carolina, the Charleston Farmers Market will open as an essentials only market on Wednesday, July 15, 2020 from 4 to 7 p.m. in the VIP parking lot adjacent to Joseph P. Riley, Jr. Park, located at 360 Fishburne Street.
Free parking will be available in the lot across the street from the market.
Vendors and patrons will be required to wear masks and maintain social distancing throughout the event, and to follow all other CDC protocols related to COVID-19.
Similar to the West Ashley Farmers Market, this essentials-only format will feature farmer and grower vendors exclusively, including R. Fields Farm, O. Freeman Farm, R & R Acres and Simmons Farm. No prepared food vendors, entertainment or other activities will be included.
Sanitation stations will be set up throughout the market, as well as signage designed to guide customers safely from vendor to vendor.
Future market dates will be announced via the Charleston Farmers Market Facebook (@CharlestonFarmersMarket), Twitter (@charlestonfarms) and Instagram (@charlestonfarms) pages as they are set.
The West Ashley Essentials Market is set to return to Ackerman Park (55 Sycamore Avenue) on Saturday, July 11, 2020 from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Additional details can be found on the West Ashley Farmers Market Facebook (@WestAshleyFarmersMarket), Twitter (@WAshleyFarms) and Instagram (@washleyfarmersmarket) pages.
