Bluffton Farmers Market in South Carolina

Calhoun Street and the breezy moss-draped lanes of Old Town Bluffton are the place to be on Thursday afternoons in the Lowcountry! It’s when the vibrant Farmers Market of Bluffton offers locally grown vegetables, fruits, flowers, plants and herbs, plus a potpourri of artisan quality foodstuffs. The Bluffton Farmers Market is the perfect place to pick up fresh, just-off-the-boat seafood along with all the seasonal accoutrements to prepare your very own Lowcountry feast—just like a local.

Like a Local

Outside of Old Town, Bluffton blooms as a residential community accentuated by golf courses, shopping enclaves like Buckwalter Place, the dramatic, natural beauty of the May River estuary, and true Southern hospitality. And while greater Bluffton has boomed since the 1990s—and is now one of the fastest growing communities in South Carolina—Old Town is still the heart and soul of Bluffton with its eclectic and classic charm. With a warm Lowcountry welcome, we invite you to come to Bluffton and see for yourself what life is like in “the last true coastal village of the South.”
