Thanks for sharing info on local artists! If you want to shop in person for the above local artisan products (plus check out DIY maker classes) you can also head over to SpaceCraft Studios in the Avondale area of West Ashley. http://www.spacecraftstudios.com/
This piece is a disappointing example of un-sound logic with an elitist perspective from someone clearly not directly impacted by the subject at hand. The reality is that there will always be individuals that have no other choice than to walk or bike to their destination and well as those that choose to. As a city surrounded in water, clearly these individuals must use the bridges, which unfortunately are poorly planned for non-vehicle use. Are people going to stop using the bridges because they are dangerous? No. Pretending they will is naïve and only stands in the way of realistic and progressive solutions. Are bike lanes the silver bullet? Obviously not but they are a step in the right direction.
As someone who spent two years biking from West Ashley into downtown, I assure you these changes are necessary to ensuring people can get to and from the peninsula without endangering themselves and others. I personally am proud of the City for recognizing the importance of this project and look forward to having a designated space to safely share the road.
Also stop by Marion Square Saturday between 8am-2pm for the opening of the Charleston Farmers Market! This year there are more farmers, food vendors, and artisans plus tomorrow there will be free Plow to Chow tastings, children's games and photo-booth at the Lowcountry Local First tent by the Calhoun statue.
Check out a full list of CSA offerings for vegetables, meat, seafood, and dairy at Lowcountry Local First's website: http://lowcountrylocalfirst.org/?q=node/14…
