We walked the downtown street and checked out the antique stores. Its a great downtown area full of specialty shops. The homemade soap is a great buy.

We went on New Years Day, so everything was pretty much closed, and it was so quiet and serene, and you could really feel the history seeping out from every corner. I would definitely recommend just taking a few minutes to check it out during your downtown stroll and snap some pics. It's pretty cool!

There's not much to see, but the place has some history. It is in the center of town, in the Hay Street area, close to shops and restaurants. Worth a visit.

Best times to go are in the evening on the 4th Friday of the month or during the International Folk Festival in late September. Call the Chamber of Commerce... More

Buildings are beautiful but after you hear about the slavery trade that was conducted here it just makes you realize why Fayetteville is what it is. I was actually on a business tour when a sales person told a group of us what the marketplace was used for...needless to say she didn't realize that the African Americans in the shuttle... More

Not much to see. I can only imagine what it would have been like. Read the history of this structure before visiting.
