Johns Island Farmers Market Move to Charleston Collegiete Campus
In its fourth year of operation, the Johns Island Farmers Market recently moved to the Charleston Collegiate School’s campus, located at 2024 Academy Drive on Johns Island. The market operates year round, every Saturday from 10 AM to 2 PM. The new location is only 1.5 miles from the market’s previous location.
The new location will offer ample amenities such as more space, better and more parking, power, water, a playground, and pleasant, shady tree-covered areas. Farmers Market Director Frasier Block said of the move, “We are thrilled to be moving the market to CCS. The campus amenities will make the market experience much more enjoyable for our loyal vendors and patrons, and their established 47-year presence will help us better our community outreach efforts.”
Head of Charleston Collegiate School Hacker Burr stated, “We are excited to partner with local businesses like the Johns Island Farmers Market, and we look forward to providing a place for the community to come together and buy local for years to come. This is just one of many ways that we are trying to share the resources we have with our neighbors to make our island a better place.”
Patrons can look forward to an abundance of new and returning farmers, vendors, variety of artisans, food trucks, local music, enjoyable activities and much more for all ages. Pets are welcome too!
