The popular Farmers’ Market at the Green Barn returns May 4. The local market in Carnes Crossroads sits just off U.S. Highway 17A between Summerville and Goose Creek. It will be Wednesday afternoons 3-6 p.m. through the end of August.

The Green Barn open-air venue provides “a shaded showcase for fresh produce, seafood, baked goods, treats (and) artisan products.” Local farmers and businesses presenting wares include Gruber Family CSA Farms, Caladiums Creations for baked goods, Ruby G’s Closet making hand-sewn items, Pampered Skin all-natural bath and body products, Fruit Creations including jams and jellies and Purple Rose candles. More vendors will be disclosed closer to the opening date, according to Carnes Crossroads.

The Green Barn stands at 207 Parish Farms Drive. Parking is free. Contact Lisa Avant at lisa.avant@dicommunity.org or 843-971-9200.

Carnes Crossroads, a 2,300-acre master planned community, promotes “traditional residential neighborhoods, parks, trails and lakes.” They match up with a school and church, hospital, retail businesses, corporate offices and medical services. The ownership and development team behind Carnes Crossroads is also responsible for 4,000-acre Daniel Island community in Charleston.
