Always enjoy this place. I enjoy walking around outside looking at the flowers. We ate brunch at Sohos. I had the frittata. It was really good. The staff was pleasant. The prices were reasonable. It was not crowded.

We stopped here on our vacation and it was a one stop shop. Local produce and plants and artisans. They even had the salt from the local salt mine. It was a fun stop.

Not really a market! An art display by local artist and very overpriced.... We were there years ago and loved it, but it has changed.... Do not look for food there....

I found few veggies but an explosive market of West Virginia flowers. There were many eager folks who had their arms and buggies full! What a good Saturday at the Farmers Market in Charleston!

Outside yes, inside no. Cat friendly to but they frown on cats larger them 30 pounds. They also don't like alligators, deer, and zebras. Oh and elephants. Don't bring your elephant.
