The weekend after Thanksgiving involves some of the most intense bargain-hunting the world has ever seen; fighting the crowds can be intimidating, but the fear of missing out on a sale is real. Take a break from the chaos of Black Friday while fulfilling your duty as a consumer at the Marion Square Farmers Market. There are plenty of opportunities for Christmas shopping, from vendors selling items like sweetgrass baskets, pottery, skin care products, candles, furniture, and photography. Squash, sweet potatoes, and Brussels sprouts are in season this time of year, so you can stock up on fall vegetables while supporting local growers like Ambrose Family Farm, Simmons Farm, and Island Thyme Herbs. As always, bring the kids along for pony rides and jump castles, and grab lunch at one of the numerous food vendors. The David Higgins Band will perform from 10 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Charleston Moves’ Free Bike Valet will be at the market for the last day of the season. Show your ticket from the bike valet to the vendors at the market, and you may be able to receive a special discount.
