“The changing seasons dictate the inventory, which means you'll never visit the same market twice. It’s a spectacular place to plug into the vibe of this vibrant mountain ringed town and grab some authentic West Virginia wares to remember your trip.”
- Taste of the South Magazine

We have convenient and plentiful free parking, a Charleston Visitor Center and are located in the heart of downtown.

Capitol Market reviews
Loved the variety of vendors inside and the outside market was great. Prices outside were very affordable and had I had more room in my car, I would have traveled home with a lot of outdoor plants... more »
This is an amazing attraction in my home town. You can purchase almost everything you need. It offers an outdoor farmers market, and indoor shopping from unique produce items at the Purple Onion... more »
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!
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.
