Charleston Farmers' Market, Marion Square


Fresh Find: Lady peas, butter beans, and freshly dug potatoes from farmer Celeste Albers.

On the Market: "I am seduced by the aromas—scenting out the strawberries or peaches or melons first—sliding the tender fruit into my wheeled wicker basket, moving the freshly dug potatoes and green vegetables around, trying to get the heaviest on the bottom. Finally, the eggs are settled in on top. I am the richest woman in Charleston as I pull my cart home, past boutiques and shops, jewelers and antiques stores—the envy of all." —Nathalie Dupree, Charleston-based cookbook author and educator
