Not since Jim Cantore kneed a CofCer in the balls during winter storm Leon has inclement weather had us so keyed up. It looks like tropical storm Ana may threaten farmers market shopping this weekend and we wanted some English peas, damnit. Thanks a lot, Ana.
The City of Charleston just announced via Twitter that Saturday’s Charleston Farmers Market at Marion Square will be closed.
