From watermelon to hydrangeas the Capitol Market is the place to go. Every season brings new items to the market and a fresh source of those things that cannot be found in the box stores.... More

The fresh fruits, vegetables, and flowers are just great to walk around. The inside shops of the old train station were nice. The visitors center in the old train station was also a good place to get information about the area and had some good restaurant recommendations.

If you are staying for a few days in Charleston, the Capital Market is worth a visit. They have wonderful fresh fruits & vegetables outside & multiple vendors inside with fresh meat & seafood. They are open 7 days a week.
