Fall has arrived in Charleston SC …. Yes, I know I am late!  The first official day of Fall was September 21, 2010….But with the temperature reaching 94degrees F in Charleston SC on that date I just couldn’t get into the Autumn mindset.

Well, we have received our weather reprieve - the temperature and humidity levels have dropped, Summer is winding down and FALL is in the air… I love this time of year – I find a renewed strength to get things done and one of my favorite things to do is to visit the Farmers Market – they are so colorful – vibrant -  offering pickles to pumpkins with lots of other stuff in between.

I thought a list of some of Charleston’s area markets might be of interest to others who love the outdoor Autumn market experience as much as I do. Photos from Olde Time Farmers Market on Johns Island SC.... Thank you Donna !

Pumpkin Factoids – More than any other fruit or vegetable it is the colorful  mounds of pumpkins that signal Fall has arrived at the markets. In fact over 80% of the pumpkin supply in the USA is available in October… so if you aren’t familiar with  Cinderella Pumpkins, Peanut Pumpkins, Long Island Cheese Pumpkins, One Color Too Many Pumpkins…. You may want to visit your local market cause there is more to pumpkins than Jack O’Lanterns…
