A definite must if you're in Charleston. Lots of little booths with a variety of things to buy. I have bought jewelry several times and found prices reasonable. We stop by every time we're in Charleston and always enjoy the experience.

This facility covers about five city blocks and lined with local vendors. The facility also has a number of places for refreshments, but there are many restaurants all around the facility. There is a lot of trinkets, t-shirts, etc, but there are also sweetgrass baskets and other crafts available too. It is a fun place to shop.

Stroll through the city market to get a feel of some of the items sold in Charleston. There is some beautiful artwork as well as souvenirs if you are looking for items to bring back to your friends and family.

Always stop by here when visiting Charleston. Lots of vendors selling their products. Jewelry, shirts, sweet grass baskets, lots to look at. You won't want to miss this if walking thru the city.
