The Market is nice. There is both open air areas and air conditioning. You can find beautiful Charleston Baskets, silver, interesting art, and linens. Best first thing in the morning in my opinion because if you happen through on a slow day in the afternoon some vendors have left early.

City market in Charleston is a fun place to walk through. It is several blocks long and has everything from food, to hats, to clothes, to toys, unique jewelry, and many other things. It runs right down the middle of the street. Just fun to experience.

Cool place! Very busy! Not really stroller friendly only because the quarters are so tight. Neat handmade things everywhere.

If you are looking for local vendors, handmade or unique it's a must stop! I was shocked at how many vendors there are there during the week! Can't wait to experience the night market this weekend!

Great selection of vendors who change often. Has an air conditioned section for heat relief and convenient to carriage rides and restaurants. Clean and well maintained.

This city market was average, many of the vendors seemed to repeat items. Most of the merchandise was of average quality. It's nice to walk through and see what is offered, everything is organized. I expected more.

The Market was near our hotel so we decided to take a walk through. It is a very interesting place where people sell their things but all of it is not local to SC. It's a fun thing to do but very touristy.
