The town of Port Royal is the site of Lowcountry Made’s newest venue!
Lowcountry Made is the premiere popup market agency in the Lowcountry. They exist to partner with small local businesses and help them grow through their popup markets and events. Katie Silva founded Lowcountry Made with a mission to promote Lowcountry makers, connect them with shoppers, and promote business to business collaboration. The newest, Beaufort location is Live Oaks Park, 904 14th St.
Lowcountry Made began creating popup markets during the pandemic to provide a safe platform for makers to engage with shoppers. What they didn’t anticipate was the immensely positive response from our community. Their neighborhoods turned out, and they saw a widespread desire to shop local, shop handmade, meet the maker and be a part of the community.
Since then they have facilitated over 40 artisan markets around the Lowcountry, the newest being in the heart of downtown Port Royal.
They encourage visitors to make a day of it! Start your day with a cup of coffee from our friends at Corner Perk Port Royal. Then walk over to Live Oaks Park to peruse the stalls of over 30 local vendors set up amongst the trees.
Outside of the market you’ll find eclectic shops, the Cypress Wetlands hiking trail, and The Sands beach — locally known for finding shark teeth and oyster shells. The Port Royal beer garden is next to the Sands if you’re looking for a beer with a view!
The Lowcountry Made Port Royal Markets are held on select second and fourth Saturdays throughout the year.
Dates include: May 21, June 11 & 25, July 9 & 23. Aug 13 & 27, Sept 10 & 24, Oct 8 & 22, Nov 12 & 26, and Dec 10. Each market includes live music, food and drink, and is free to attend!
