“Crowded open space”
Reviewed January 12, 2013

Should be an oasis but it's very busy. Fun farmers market though. And a good place for the kids to run - and Starbucks is just opposite.

“Only reason I have to use to get back to Charleston!”
Reviewed December 31, 2012

My husband and I love Marion Square for the incredible Farmers Market. We accidentally stumbled onto it and have been coming to shop here for gifts for the last 5 years. We buy our Christmas gifts for other her from the amazing selection of pottery, jewelry, food gifts and crafts. We always plan to eat from the vendors and listen to the bands that come to entertain. This year there was a wonderful reggae band wearing Santa hats and they were outstanding! It is easy to spend a lot of money because you get so much for your money.

Charleston really deserves to win the award for friendliest city!

“Decorated for Christmas”
Reviewed December 26, 2012

According to our B&B hosts the square has improved over the last ten years. Christmas lights made the place rather festive by night, by day the square lends itself to play and contemplation. Easy cut through from Meeting St to King St. Well-kept.

“Great Weekend Market”
Reviewed December 19, 2012

We were staying at the Francis Marion Hotel right on the square and noticed the maket on Saturday and Sunday mornings. We took the time to stroll the booths and taste some of the vittels. It was a lovely way to spend a beautiful December morning. The square was also very pretty in the evenings, as many of the trees had been decorated for the holidays.
