This 3 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.
The Chef's Showcase at the Farmer's Market Culinary Tour is available when the Charleston Farmer's Market is open, on Saturdays from mid-April through mid-December.
