Capitol Market, Charleston

4.6
Capitol Market is an indoor outdoor year-round market that anchors the Charleston community, allowing bakers, makers, farmers, fishmongers, crafters, potters and more to offer their wares to the rush of grateful locals and strolling tourists.

“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

June 2015

Capitol Market is located in a charming, restored turn-of-the-century train station from the 1800’s. We have convenient and plentiful free parking, a Charleston Visitor Center and are located in the heart of downtown. We’re just minutes from the West Virginia Capitol Complex, State Culture Center, Clay Center for the Arts and Sciences & Appalachian Power Park – less than 1/2 mile from the convergence of Interstates 77, 79 & 64!

We feature a fine Italian restaurant, indoor specialty shops, over 30 seasonal West Virginia outdoor farmers and growers, a 900 foot-long porch with seating for alfresco dining, plus multiple community events. Come see us during your visit and explore our unique slice of Appalachia!

  • I enjoy Capital Market our Family visits Johnnie's Meat Market often. Plus they have an amazing Farmers Market in there when it's in season, they also have a very nice Restaurant and a Produce store called The Purple Onion for those months that the Farmers market isn't in season.
  • 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!
