Farmers’ Market Culinary Tour

Why We Love This

  • Learn how a chef chooses products and then eat a meal with the ingredients purchased at the market
  • Ranked 5th best tour in the U.S. by Travel & Leisure magazine
  • An assault on the senses - beautiful vegetables, and more

The tour is partially lead by a local chef who will discuss why he/she chooses certain products, what he/she looks for in selecting produce and what he/she is trying to achieve in color, flavor, and balance. Once the selections are complete, the co-host guides the tours through local neighborhoods to discuss local restaurants and architecture while the guest chef prepares a multi-course meal using the items purchased from the farms' market.

What You'll Do

This 2 1/2 hour tour showcases some of Charleston's best Chefs and Charleston's award-winning farmer's market, which was nationally ranked by Travel and Leisure Magazine. Starting at the corner of Meeting and John Streets near the Charleston Visitor Center, you will meet your tour guide and that day's participating Chef, who will lead the group to the farmer's market to pick out the freshest ingredients the market has to offer. After you and your Chef pick out ingredients and you explore the market, your guide will take the group on a walking tour for approximately 45 minutes. Meanwhile, the Chef will prepare a multi-course meal utilizing the ingredients just purchased at the market, for a true farm-to-table experience.
