Had a little bit of time and checked out the Market Square buildings. It was very busy with lots of people going through. Nice variety of vendors and very cool atmosphere for tourists. Nice area to kill some extra time.

Lots of different vendors. Clean restrooms. Straw baskets galore. Food items, jewelry, leather goods, paintings and clothing. Too many items to mention.

Great way to get out of the sun or rain and take some time to checkout fun vendor booths. From art, to jewelry, to local basket makers.

Never seen so many baskets in my life ! People were offering all sort of crafts and mementos . You better watch your budget in this place so full of people . It reminds me so much of New Orleans, La !

Go early because it get crowded by midday. The sweet-grass baskets are beautiful and there are lots of gift ideas for those you left home!

Parking is available alongside the market, If you plan to park there I highly suggest you get there very early. Otherwise there is a parking garage located off King Street which isn't too far of a walk to city market. Plus... More

It's an open air market, but I don't recall seeing any and it's not listed as being dog friendly on the Bring Fido website.
