Food markets in Savannah?

Hansel Oct 19, 2010 07:56 PM

I'll be in Savannah for five days in November, and we're renting a holiday apartment in the historical district. We'll certainly want to try some good restaurants, but we also really enjoy visiting local markets and being able to buy food to cook at home. Are there any interesting farmers' or other local markets anyone can recommend? I was wondering if there was anything on the order of Pike Place Market in Seattle or Reading Terminal Market in Philadelphia. Or, if not, any other good food shopping you could recommend? Thanks for any advice!

    Try Polk's Produce at 530 E Liberty. They also do home-cooking lunches.

    Davis Produce on Hwy 80 on Whitemarsh Island is also a nice stop if you're on the way to Tybee Island.

    Parker's Gourmet Market is a convenient place to pick up some goodies besides produce.

    Gourmet Market
    14 Executive Park Rd Ste C, Hilton Head Island, SC 29928

      The "local" market scene in Savannah is quite small.

      Brighter Day natural foods grocery would be a good resource to pick up a few ingredients to cook at home. http://www.brighterdayfoods.com

        The farmer's market is at Forythe on Saturdays too.
