The West Ashley Farmers Market (WAFM) returns following a successful autumn 2016 pilot season, produced by the City of Charleston Office of Cultural Affairs (OCA) in cooperation with the City's Parks Department.
The 2017 season will open on Wednesday, April 19, with hours of 3:00-7:00 pm, with Wednesday markets scheduled weekly through October 4.
The WAFM is dedicated to the support and advocacy of local farmers and growers and features fresh seasonal produce, as well as sweet and savory foods from area vendors who source ingredients from nearby farms.
The WAFM expands access to local fresh food, supports the local economy and local agriculture, and provides a civic gathering place and opportunities for community engagement.
A curated program of live entertainment and family-friendly activities enhance the farmers’ market experience. Addressing one of the key strategies in the City of Charleston’s 2014 West Ashley Strategic Plan, the WAFM will help create community partnerships and reactivate civic spaces.
Ackerman Park is a popular and easily accessible City-owned park located near St. Andrews Boulevard, off of Sycamore Avenue. Patrons are encouraged to cycle or walk to the market, if they live in nearby neighborhoods. Parking is also available at Ackerman Park.
