“Avoid”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 10, 2013

Pick Pocket Plantation. What can you say? Those of you who expect to find a grand ante-bellum mansion in the midst of manicured grounds will be sadly disappointed. The house, which appears to date from the late 19th or early 20th Century, is undistinguished. It may once have been home to a prosperous farm family: but to suggest that it has any link to the Old South or was otherwise the centerpiece of a grand agricultural enterprise is quite a stretch. The furnishings are equally undistinguished. Many appear to have been picked up in yard sales, have indeterminate pedigrees and could more appropriately be called old-timey-looking kitsch. Beaufort has many homes to visit that are of historical or architectural interest. Unfortunately, Pick Pocket isn't one of them.

“Not worth the detour.”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 11, 2013 via mobile

It is difficult to find, since both Google and Apple maps don't have it in the right location. The farmers market was 8 stands: aromatherapy, soap, plants, ice cream, bread, peanut butter, and vegetables (but only 6 varieties). Nothing else interesting, no tour of the house, which was smaller than one would have thought.

“Interesting experience”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 5, 2013

It took two trys to locate the plantation so I would recommend asking at the tourist information center at the Arsenal in Beaufort. (She knows everything!!) We visited during the Sat market and all of the vendors were extremely friendly and interesting. They all had homemade goods (mostly foods) but honey and soaps as well. We took several things all the way back to New Jersey with us. Even the bread travels! Market is small but it was just April 1st and made for an interesting stop.

“Farmer's Market”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 24, 2013

When I travel I like to experience local color and cuisine. This place has a little of both. It is hidden well but easy to get to. The people that have been showing wares at the farmer's market are wonderful both times I have visited. The 'Candy Lady' makes home made candy including her homemade peanut butter. There is the 'bread guy' who hand makes wonderful bread creations. There is a gentleman that sells dips and chips also homemade creations. John the proprieter even makes his own syrup there on site. All the people are nice and even give free samples. You have to take a look. Hopefully in time this place will grow and fast.

“Like going back in time!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 22, 2013

Right smack dab in the middle of the city is a little farm that you would not even know was there. When you drive down the dirt road you are transported back in time! There are several buildings back there: barns, warming house, and a lovely plantation house! They have a farmers/craft market on Saturdays, they have stables, they give tours of the grounds and the old house. I believe they also rent the space out for weddings and other events. If you have not been there, I highly recommend stopping by!
