The outside market is filled with genuine, hard working people selling great produce at incredible prices. The inside is filled with pompous, over inflated businesses who are disingenuous and over priced.

If you are in Charleston, you have to go by the Capital Market. Lot of veggies, fruits and flowers outside and when you go inside the building, you can find unique foods. yummy

This is a must visit for anyone coming to Charleston. The Capitol Market is full of local food and local vendors. They also have a great outdoor section where they sell seasonal plants and vegetables.

Always enjoy this place. I enjoy walking around outside looking at the flowers. We ate brunch at Sohos. I had the frittata. It was really good. The staff was pleasant. The prices were reasonable. It was not crowded.

Outside yes, inside no. Cat friendly to but they frown on cats larger them 30 pounds. They also don't like alligators, deer, and zebras. Oh and elephants. Don't bring your elephant.
