I was born and raised in the Gullah Geechee diaspora and my talents were taught to me within an actual temple! I am the Owner of Folly Beach Farmers Market, so trust me when I say have private access to some of Charleston's greatest Gullah Artisans, artists and musicians! This has been my passion for over 20 years and I am honored and prepared to share with you all!
Where you'll be
The location of our experience is a unique beachside park of the Gullah Geechee culture. It is known as the Folly River Park home of the 55th Massachusets Regiment! As an ambassador and local community figure I am able to give the best experience possible with a modern twist! You'll then get to tour each vendor with a small insight on each product and talent!
