In the old train station, markets that are from some of the best chocolate to local art and sauces, jams, honey, etc. Stroll all year long and then when the weather is warm hit the outside market. A must visit.

We always try to get to the Capitol Market when in town, everything is fresh both inside at the year round shops and outside with the local produce vendors. This weekend they were painting pumpkins with the local kids, the Charleston bike patrol was there with nike helmets for the kids it was great to see everyone out and about.

I loved everything! The parking was easy, the location was easy to find..people so nice. If you visit you need to try SOHO's restaurant located right there. Wow so good. They have someone playing music every Saturday and it was very good as well! Chris Reese was unbelievable.

I decide to walk from my hotel to the Capitol Market. Just few blocks and I really loved. Nice fresh produce, a really good honey from the mountain state, a West Virginia Maple Syrup and few biscuits for my dogs. Kind of expensive but is good stuff.

I have never really bought much here to date, but it is a very cool place to visit. It's nice to have a local market with fresh produce, and the locals that work here are so pleasant and patient. I never felt any pressure to make a purchase.
