Cliff Meadows

Neat things you can't get anywhere else!

John P Lichter

Great place to browse and eat!

Andrea James

Very nicely set up. Each store is marked as it's own. Everything is clean, and well kept. There is a huge nursery along side that looked wonderful. Definitely worth visiting for a walk through to at least get a cup of coffee and some swiss chocolate.

Mandi O

I'm a big fan of reusing old buildings, and that's exactly what they did here. There's sushi, a deli, good coffee, chocolate truffles wine market, possibly a restaurant, and more. It's a casual place with outside seating to enjoy your food purchases. The farmers market out front has great produce, and lots of plants. This is a great stop if you're in the area. There's also an ATM on premises.

Daniel Hanshew

Neat place, you can still find something new each visit.

Angela Chestnut

Whether you are local or visiting - check out the Capitol Market. Something for everyone! Gifts, crafts, meat market, and yummy food choices in addition to the outdoor market. It's like the Charleston version of Tamarack (but smaller price tags)!

Kim Wriston

Great to walk around and get some fresh, seasonal produce or plants. If you are looking for a WV souvenir or gift, go to the indoor shop just before the restrooms. And you must try the Big Fish sandwich from the indoor fish stall. It is huge and so yummy!

Susan Baldwin

Good shops. Specialty items you can't find elsewhere. I went for the coffee, but bought two bottles of wine in addition to a bag of one of my favourite African coffee beans. Plants outside.

Devin Fields

Extensive produce and plant selection!! The prices are good and the vendors are friendly and helpful. The different selections on the inside of the market are great too with sushi, seafood, sandwiches, and a healthy market. I love it here

Kassaundra Willis

Fresh food and product from local business. Staff is friendly and helpful. Produce is great. Salads are my favorite! Vegetarian Southwest is awesome and more should be added to the shelf

Terry Campbell

Great place to shop for some unique items. Meat market is awesome as well.

Kellen Shearin

Cool place. Lots of local goods


Great indoor market with tons of local vendors with a wide range of options for food, good and coffee. I highly recommend the coffee shop in this place. You would never expect the quality of the coffee you can get in this little place. It is surprisingly world class.

Lori Mandich

Really neat place..need another restaurant!

James Richmond

Missy Wilson

Maria Runyon

I love this place! Always friendly , great food, beautiful and clean!!

Wendy Thomas

Purple onion always has good variety. Good place to get bulk "goodies" and veggies

J. Michael Mollohan

Capitol Market is diverse and moderately convenient. Since the old Farmers Market morphed into Capitol Market, the prices have increased, and I don't like that, but the freshness and selection can't be beat. The inside stores are aimed at a more upscale clientele, but I do occasionally partake. The Purple Onion offers decent produce year round. Johnny's Meat Market offers the best meat around. My main complaint, other than prices, is that they close at 6:00 pm. For a lot of people who work until five o'clock and have a commute, that's not at all convenient.

Ronneisa Smith

Always a pleasant trip to the fish market

Clarice Boyden

The flower selection was just amazing and overwhelming. There is so many flowers to look at and pick. I will continue to go to the capital market for all of my flower, plant, and vegetable shopping. Also, the meat market was the best I've ever seen. The meat selection and cuts or astronomical. The meat was so beautiful. Everyone should try to make a stop at Capital Market.

Fresh and Fantastic! There is something for everyone here! The outdoor section is full of plants, fruits and veggies with so many offerings you can easily spend an entire day shopping for your favorites! Inside is more than you can hope for with coffee, wine, crafts, and the purple onion market! I left with some amazing honey, pepper mustard, fresh produce, several marinades, gorgeous hanging baskets, and a few local crafts that were high quality! Spend some time here, you won't regret it!

This place is amazing. Inside has a good variety of groceries and local artisan stuff. But the real reason to come is when the outside market is booming with plants. Whether it's veggies or herbs, or house/outdoor plants, the market will blow you away. It is gorgeous. Well worth a weekend visit!

Nick Patel

Love this place. Local vendors

Josh Muncy

Awesome place to get plants and produce very fun time

Deborah Mcintyre

You can get any plant,flower or vegetable here love it


I seen nothing great about the place. Wish they had done something for the homeless that try and survive just feet away. To me it's just a glorified fancy place for the people who would rather brag about how much they paid for lunch than even wonder if the people they can't see out back even ate today. Just my opinion, if you love the place walk around back.

Janice Jones

not crowded, vegetables & fruit not their normal quality.

Frank Stemple

Great place to purchase fruit,vegetables, flowere and food items. Personnel are very helpful. One can find most anything needed.

The set up of the whole market has a welcoming atmosphere and everything there offers the best that WV has to offer

James William Gross

Always a good time! Beautiful flowers and a plethora of locally grown vegetables. Never complete without a pint or two with Eileen at Soho's. She's the darling of the Market!

Jim Schmid Photography

Great food and pumpkins.

Tim Hyatt

no actual "farmers" per se....only vendors are all greenhouses & growers from the area. The selection reflects local growing crops, but is somewhat narrow. the current management and policies has completely driven off small producers. Prices also reflect this policy. Recent attempts to push out any homeless from "hanging around" has reduced available benches and seating to a bare minimum. If you're used to real farmer's Co-op markets from other cities, you will be underwhelmed. The "permanent" residents inside the main bldg seem to be misplaced, believing the;re in an upscale warehouse in Tribeca....


What can I say? Yummmmmm. Happy smiling faces! Yeah. Can't go wrong here.

electroman 1974

Great place to visit... dont skip over this place. Well worth the visit!

Margaret Devan

I loved this market. It is definitely a diamond in the rough. It is bright,fresh,clean,and busy. I started with getting a salad from the purple onion and I also purchased the best honey crisp apples ever, I then went to Mecca Coffee and Holls chocolate. The people were all so polite and helpful with the exception of the sales employee at Holls. Their chocolates were amazing so it made up for a rude employee. This market also sell wine,fresh,fruits and veggies,houses a restaurant,sells fresh cute meat,seafood,and sushi. I will definitely come back during my monthly business visit. Enjoy the photos!

Great coffee, great restaurants, happy people and awesome farmers market. When you arrive your are treated with free parking and easy access. Then flowers and veggies. Then you look around and you realize your standing in history. The closest thing that comes to this is the market in Venice I recommend


Wonderful place. Lots of yummies. Very friendly folks
