Blackbird Market

The hometown market that should be in every neighborhood would have to be Blackbird Market! Whether you’re looking for local produce, local seafood and meats, or just an amazing sandwich with homemade southern sides, Blackbird Market has it all! Located on Johns Island, they offer locals and visitors pies, cookies, and other homemade desserts. Bread is baked fresh daily, and there is beer available, too. Enjoy indoor or outdoor seating available — or you can get it for takeout.

Blackbird Market always offers a delicious special of the day! Plus, their location is unbeatable for our rental guests staying on Kiawah Island.
