New Tasting Event Near Market

For tourists who can’t choose which restaurant near the City Market should get their weekend dining dollars, the new monthly Taste of the Market event should be a boon.

Starting this Thursday, 10 restaurants will set up sampling tents and tables in the Palmetto Carriage Company Lot from 5:30 p.m.-8 p.m. Neighborhood stores will also be represented, and organizers are planning chef demos and live music.

Presented by the City Market Hospitality Association and Charleston Culinary Tours, the event features food from Lowcountry Bistro, The Peanut Shop of Charleston, Noisy Oyster, Mad River, AW Shucks, Wild Wing CafĂ©, Tabbuli, Charleston Crab House, Henry’s and Burwell’s Stone Fire Grill. A sample from each vendor is included in the $10 adult ticket price.

Taste of the Market will return on the third Thursday of every month.
