Visiting Charleston for about two days and needed a few things to keep us busy. This little market was great, especially if you live in Charleston or are planning to stay a little longer. They had nice produce, an AMAZING selection of wine, and some fabulous plants. I hear the ice cream is phenomenal as well!

When the fresh veggies are coming in from all over the state, this is the place to go! Not only are you supporting local growers, but you get the freshest veggies - better than the grocery stores. If you want to eat healthy, shop here. The stores inside are open year-round, featuring many WV products.

We usually go to the FM in Milton. This on is not as big but a very nice one. Lots of interesting things. Some indoors and out. Restrooms are clean and people are friendly.

Right off I-77 and exit 100, this is a good place to stop and stretch as well as get a bite to eat. There is an array of items from bulk foods, fresh produce, garden items, kitchen items, beer, wine, seafood and WV souvenirs.

Inside you'll find several vendors selling a variety of mostly local goods. The Purple Onion sells dry beans and a variety of jarred items, including some from Amish Country and Cape Cod. There's a meat market which also sells sandwiches, a small seafood market where you can also get prepared meals and sandwiches, a wine shop with a good selection,... More

The flowers and plants were abundant this week end. Inside the Hall chocolates were to die for. The raspberry truffles were my favorite. Rest rooms were clean and well stocked.

Small tucked away, you could miss it if you did not know about it. It is a nice ridden gem in the city, fresh coffee, sandwiches, salads, bulk nuts, snacks. And a beautiful outdoor market with tons of flowers.
