The advent of the mixed-use Mixson community in North Charleston’s Park Circle most recently has given rise to perhaps the modernized version of today’s corner store: the appropriately titled Mixson Market.
By boasting of its “curated goods” and “quality provisions,” Mixson Market clearly falls on the precious side of things.
Really, where else could one buy a Woolrich blanket, Caw Caw Creek pastured pork, a pint of Jeni’s Splendid Ice Cream, complete Thomas Keller cookbook set, maybe a seed bomb or two, plus an organic peanut butter and jelly sandwich?
The market is a sweet, sentimental and studied build. But it’s Mixson’s knockout collection of sandwiches that should drive the market’s new customer base.
Start with the speck and Parmesan ($8), the thin, salty ham layered onto a crunchy, buttery baguette.
Then try the chicken salad ($7), which draws mightily from the taste of dried cherries and toasted local pecans.
Or select from the roast beef and horseradish cream sauce on ciabatta ($8), a pair of Croque Madame sliders ($8) or a pimiento cheese and pickled green tomato sandwich on sourdough ($8).
Additionally, Mixson Market offers a breakfast sandwich ($6) composed of a fried egg, aged, rich cheddar cheese, arugula and balsamic reduction.
And make sure to take a gander at one of Mixson Market’s soon-to-be-famous pickled, cured, cultured platters.
Pick a board, any board, and fill it with a choice selection of charcuterie, pickled vegetables and cheeses. Ranging from $12 to $30, options include chorizo Serrano, salami Calabrese, pickled okra, green tomatoes, green beans and gourmet cheeses.
