Here’s a fun way to spend a couple hours and enjoy a tasty breakfast or lunch while you’re at it. The Market Restaurant is located on the SC State Farmers Market grounds in West Columbia. It’s locally owned and operated, and it offers a breakfast menu of traditional fare (eggs, meats, combination platters, omelets, biscuits, pancakes and french toast) and a lunch menu that features light and hearty sandwiches, salads and plates (watermelon basil feta salad, tomato & cucumber salad, meat & 3, collard slaw, burgers, chicken salad… to name a few!) It’s made fresh daily.
They recognize the difference that fresh and local South Carolina products make in the taste of their food, and are dedicated to providing customers with only the freshest products & produce right there from the Farmers Market. Providers include Monitel Produce, Senn Brothers, Severt & Sons, Rawls Collards and Ernest & Ann’s.
After a delicious lunch (and I highly recommend the Carolina wild caught shrimp), head back to the open air sheds where you can purchase as little or as much fresh produce as you desire. I have gotten in the habit of going there every few weeks and buying a box of goodies which I share with my office-mates. Right now we are knee deep in fresh juicy South Carolina peaches, tomatoes, cucumbers and watermelon!
