This is a great market that defines the meaning of sustainability by keeping it local. There are lots of vendors selling their amazing products in an easy to park, room to walk about, and fun atmosphere.
It would be fantastic if you could just add RightOnQue barbeque to your vendors! We appreciate your article, we really enjoy being a food vendor at the Charleston Farmers Market!
Total Garbage. Do not get a CSA from them. They claim they grow their own produce, but alas, all they grow is more and more paranoid and resentful. When asked where the produce came from they claimed it was from their farm. I went on a tour of the farm and there is nothing growing there. At all.
So, it's called a Co-Op but it isn't a Co-Op?
Amazing sandwiches and tons of great local produce / grocery!
And also, the corn maze died according to the owner. You can't control nature, so it seems like they used innovation instead of giving up. They cut a maze through hedges. Alot of work goes into the upkeep of the place. The questions also did not seem unfriendly to a child either. It woudl be hard to have a maze that suited everyone if the questions throughout were suited to four year olds.
Actually the farms seem alot of fun to me. It was completely family friendly (except for haunted hay ride). Boone Hall is more well known, but that does not make it better. I saw many kids going through the maze and did fine. People seemed to have a lot of fun
When my 4 year old twins and I arrived to Legare Farms, we saw signs leading us to a 'CORN' maze; however, the maze turned out to be a non-children friendly 'MYRTLE' maze. The path desperately needs to be bush hogged so children can walk through the path without becoming scratched/scraped up by tall grasses and tree limbs. As for the 'fun' questions, the game was too advanced for young kids. The whole experience of Legare Farms was mediocre in my opinion. After going through the Myrtle maze, my family and I did not even want to take the hay ride. I strongly suggest taking the kids to Boone Hall Plantation instead for a fun-filled day with your young ones.
BY FAR my favorite grocery store in Charleston. They have the freshest meat and produce in town. I know that anything I buy there is going to be of the best quality.
Vegetarian and health friendly, fairly priced, fun tastes throughout the store, fresh produce, an amazing cheese selection, good variety of fresh bulk spices and fresh wholesome selection of fish and organic meats (if that's your pref) Add free cooking classes ample parking and in town location, and that adds up to a review summarized by "thank goodness I found it when I moved here!"
