Somethings were a bit unusual. There was a nice assortment of reed baskets and Vera Bradley bags. But, for the most part it was your typical sweatshirts and souvenirs. They were fairly priced. It was a nice place to walk.

This market is very overrated. Many duplicate vendors selling the same products. No bargains to be found.
Jewelry vendors, clothing vendors, food vendors. Typical market vendors without the ability to negotiate.

Was there with family for Thanksgiving weekend and enjoyed the vendors. Many different items for sale. Souvenirs, jewelry, food, art in different forms, sea grass baskets were a few items to be found. There were musicians playing and Christmas Carolers singing. Very entertaining.

Plan on spending some time here. Local craftspeople displaying their wares plus a few flea market types. Be sure to visit Miss Vicki's sweet-grass baskets, located near the office. She and her daughter make all the baskets and they are beautiful. She will deal!

The magical city of Charleston is like stepping back in time, but strolling through the Charleston City Market is a fun and unique experience filled with a variety of colorful vendors, local artist, musicians and wares from around the world. It's a must experience while visiting Charleston.
