Charleston is rich in heritage with a warm welcoming community that thrives on its traditions and more importantly its food. We are a foodie nation with a eclectic variety of cuisine prepared by a community of very talented culinary experts. On the Third Thursday of each month (with the exception of November), the city of Charleston is offered a gift for two and a half hours. A gift that has you walking away full and satisfied.
The Taste of The Market brings culinary treats from eight generous chefs, live music to get your feet dancing, a Chef Demo, raffles for great gift cards and discounts all night long at local restaurants. All this for $10.00. If you think this seems too good to be true, let me make it even more mouth watering. The September event included:
- Mahi Tacos
- Chicken and Waffles
- Pork Tacos
- Thai Watermelon and Shrimp Gezpacho
- Smoked Salmon Dip
- Shrimp & Grits
- Crab Dip
- Pork Slides
- Yogurt cups
Take it from a very satisfied participant that was full more than once during the course of the evening, this was a memorable event that every local should take part in.
Generous contributions were provided by:
- Peanut Shop
- Noisy Oyster
- Mad River
- A.W. Shucks
- Low Country Bistro
- Crab House
- Sweet Cece’s
- Wild Wings
- Music by the Bushels
This is truly an evening of culinary magic.
Charleston is a community that invites us with open arms and takes pride in its offerings. On a monthly basis, we are treated to the First Friday Art Walk, Second Sunday street celebration on King, weekly regional farmer’s markets Downtown, Daniel Island, Mt. Pleasant and Folly Beach and the Taste of The Market. In a town with overwhelming options for entertainment, it is nice to find a rare treat that fills your appetite for food and music in the heart of downtown Charleston.
Mark your calendars today for October 17th and December 19th from 5:30 PM to 8:00 PM at the Palmetto Carriage Carriage Company Lot on Anson Street for the next two Taste of Market events.
Bring a big appetite. You will need it.
