[Spotlight] Crave Artisan Market
John lived in New York and came down to visit South Carolina. He started working with SC Speciality Food Association and began distributing local South Carolina products across the state.
With Columbia being right in the center of the state, an hour from the mountains and an hour from the beach, John knew this would be the perfect hub for planting his business.
Located on Millwood Avenue (behind Five Points), Crave is an Artisan Market and cafe providing primarily South Carolina products. You can also find products from North Carolina, Georgia, and other Southeastern states. It started with local vendors and became a platform to promote other local businesses.
They also offer a Cafe where they feature products they sell in store such as almond butter with blueberry lime jam, sandwiches with historic street names, and other cafe-type dishes.
John expects Columbia to grow with more restaurant options (as we've seen so far) and their business expects to grow by putting together meals-to-go.
