After spending the night in Charleston to break up a long drive, the Capitol Market was the perfect morning stopover for a tasty cup of coffee and healthy provisions for breakfast and lunch. Though December meant reduced offerings, the venders were well-stocked and I found quality chocolate (relatively inexpensive) and half-price handmade Christmas cards for next year. Friendly folks made... More

A great farmers market but also food / meat /fish market, restaurants, and WV made wines & crafts. A nice complex with a laid back atmosphere and special events every month. Ever changing variety of products according to the season. Springtime flower selling season is especially beautiful and the vendors are pleasant and helpful.

We go here throughout the year but this is my favorite time to go. It is a fantastic place to get wonderful, unusual Christmas gifts. Anything from food products to wine to woodwork crafts. Highly recommend a stop here anytime of the year!

My Goodness at the various items and shops found in this one place. I wanted to pick up some fresh tomatoes and onions for a dish I was preparing for my girlfriend and she took me here. Upon pulling into the parking lot and going thru the gate, I noticed fresh fruits, pumpkins, and beautiful fall mums outside. Then I... More

This is definitely a nice little spot in Charleston. I was unable to find the exact item I was looking for but this is definitely a place to find nice things.

Love going through all the shelves of the different stores here. Very nice place to relax & eat either from a stand or at the restaurant. Bought several things I probably wouldn't have found elsewhere.

We walked through the market which has an outside and an inside. On the outside there were multiple booths with fresh fruits and vegetables and other booths with plants , flowers and fresh herbs. Inside there were areas with meats, seafood, wines, specialty foods and crafts.
