This Saturday, January 6 the Johns Island Farmers Market, will begin it’s fifth year of operation. JIFM, Charleston’s premiere year round farmers market, operates every Saturday from 10:00 am – 2:00 pm . The market is easily found on the beautiful campus of Charleston Collegiate School, 2024 Academy Drive, Johns Island.
Shoppers can look forward to a joy filled atmosphere with upwards of 60 new and returning farmers and vendors, a variety of artisans, food trucks, local music, and enjoyable activities for all ages each week.
The variety of goods that can be found at JIFM include but are not limited to local, naturally grown seasonal produce, spices, herbs, essential oils, bone broth, kombucha, handmade arts and crafts, baked sweets, tea, plants, honey, chocolates, cheeses, jams, canned goods, take & bake foods, cider tonics, organic skin care, olives and olive oil, pet products, fresh pasta, hearth breads, coffees, farm fresh eggs, local seafood, and heritage meats just to name a few.
Organizers are proud to launch a “Truth and Transparency Mission” to ensure that all produce, products, foods, and crafts are honest about how and where they are grown or made. The goal of this market is to be a trustworthy place for customers to shop and know that the background work is being done to ensure that all goods sold here are legitimately local, sustainable, and labeled honestly.
