Solid quick meal place on Kiawah Island's resort

We purchased food at the Market a couple of times during a one week vacation on Kiawah. Our pasta, sandwiches, pizza, and salads were very good, as was the breakfast. We also saw several folks enjoying the ice cream (though we did not partake ourselves). Good place to quickly grab food, groceries... read more

In addition to a grill-type restaurant, there's a small grocery store here. The selection is quite limited but you will find eggs, bacon, milk, bread, cereal, etc. Just a word of warning - be prepared for the cost. A half gallon of milk and a dozen eggs cost me over $10.

Well stocked, good prices, very friendly and terrific hours. We stopped to get some snacks and some food to have at the hotel and could not believe the quality and low prices for some very unique and great food. Fun just to shop around.

Location is everything here, however, as noted by other reviewers, the prices are a bit higher, the food was average in my opinion, very "assembly line" or "cafeteria" style, but it opens earlier than most other options on the Island and it's pretty fast, so once you figure out that you have to order at the cash register instead of...

Great place for breakfast or pizza at night but definitely not a dinner suggestion. Open late for a resort place with groceries which I dont recommend since they are extremely expensive. Their wine in the grocery part is restaurant prices.

We regularly bike to the Market to order their Carolina wraps, with sausage, peppers, onions, and cheese. We love the coffee, French toast and service as well. Deborah has been the manager for years and treats us and many others like family. Sit outside on the patio and watch for herons, bluebirds or gators. The groceries are merely a convenience... More

Some ok food items but many of the grocery items are outrageously over priced, be careful. We understand there is a value to convenience and that in a resort area prices are most often inflated. But $5.50 for a half gallon of milk is what I would call price gouging! Shame on you! The clerk was obvious embarrassed and offered... More

We rode our bikes here and had lunch. The sandwiches here are good as they use Boars Head meats and good bread. You can sit inside or outside on the patio. The market also has wine, drinks, and some food. The prices are decent.
