“Mixed Bag”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 29, 2013 via mobile

As a preface, I love markets! This is my second visit to the Charleston Market. The renovations are very nice. What was a bit disappointing was the amount of junk being sold. There are no food/grocery vendors. Seems there is an abundance of cheap jewelry, scarves, etc. On the other hand, the seagrass basket weavers, artists and Gullah spices can also be found throughout. Of course, I like the more authentic items but my children loved browsing the less expensive items.

“ONE OF THE BEST MARKETS I'VE VISITED”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 25, 2013

This market is such fun to explore. It was an old slave market, so carries a lot of history (as does all of Charleston). It was remodeled recently, but it still has its charm. The vendors are very nice, and you can watch the basket makers as they work.

“Cool place to shop!”

It's like a big flea market,with lots of history! What makes it different is the local craftsmen especially the sweetgrass basket weavers!

“Lovely!!!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 17, 2013

It was wonderful!! There were lots of things for sale, but not a lot of old Charleston things. It was more like a higher priced flea market
