- Guests meet their tour guide and chef du jour at The Veggie Bin (96 Spring Street), our favorite neighborhood market for all things seasonal & local. Guests will have the opportunity to exclusively peruse the freshest produce our local farms have to offer, while selecting the items to be used by their chef.
- Once all selections have been made, the chef will return to the kitchen to begin crafting the day's findings into a multi-course lunch. Meanwhile, guests explore the historic Cannonborough Elliotborough neighborhood on a walking tour with their city-certified guide.
- After working up an appetite, guests reunite with their chef at a local restaurant, where the tour concludes with a one-of-a-kind feast prepared from their Market selections, for a true farm-to-table experience.
TIP: This is a great way to eat like a local while supporting multiple small businesses, to explore off the beaten path, to meet a top-rated Charleston Chef, and to experience the superb creativity and bounty that has come to define Charleston cuisine!
