Was presenting at a Conference recently in Charleston and took 3 friends to the Capitol Market. The market has a large indoor area including meats, wines, cheese, vegetables, salsa's and much more. Outside is the traditional farmer market with plants, vegetables, trees and more. Look for the exotic plants! We bought an African mask and was very intrigued with a... More

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 noticed was a free parking very close. On my way back to... More

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.

A real step above a farmer's market, Capitol Market features locally grown produce and other products in a nice, covered, open-air setting. Free parking close by. Outdoor market is open April through Sept. but the indoor section has several year-round shops and restaurants (Fresh Seafood served an excellent crab cake sandwich on a big croissant-highly recommend!.) The chocolate shop was... More

Nice place to eat and shop lunch crowd goes around noon so eat early or around 1 for parking and dinning. Weekends may be less crowded but the Market has a nice fish place and sandwich shop that also has great hot dogs. I enjoy Soho's for more of a upscale lunch or dinner. Outdoor seating and indoor. Indoor shops... More
