I expected more great shopping and ambiance when visiting the City Market. We walked through about 10:30 AM on a chilly Friday morning, and didn't find it especially interesting or inviting, so we walked through once again about 3:00 in the afternoon when it was warm and sunny, but it was much the same as the morning. My opinion as a visitor, is perhaps more thought needs to be given to this great site which lacks appeal, action, and more of everything Savannah. Some nice art though, and a couple restaurants, but none we wanted to visit. Hear me on this one, if you want a great shopping experience, go to The Paris Market the corner of Bull and Broughton Street, not far from the City Market, and you will momentarily forget you are in Savannah, and will just assume you are in Paris. Not the usual touristy items...this is the real thing. Two floors of everything you'd hope for in a Paris Market, right in beautiful Savannah. Welcoming sales staff, beautiful interior...worth a visit.

A diversion from River St. Great when live bands are playing. Place to find Paula Deens and Wild Wings.

A great place to hang out and take in all the flavors of the city. Look for hotels close and you can walk to dinner at several restaurants that are located in the market. Can walk to river street from here and close to several historic squares. A place to put on your to do list while in town.

I was visiting Savannah back in late Nov/early Dec of 2012. We stopped at City Market to hear a live band playing outside across from Wild Wings Cafe. The band consisted of 3 young male members (teenagers - early 20's). They played mostly Southern/Classic Rock on Saturday Dec. 1, 2012. Any idea where I can find the name of this band or any info on how to locate them?

Thank you for visiting City Market. I believe the name of the band you are looking for is Individually Twisted. You can find their information on Facebook. Please let me know if this is the band you were looking for.

We always visit City Market when in Savannah. There are many interesting shops to go through. Our favorite pizza, Vinnie Van Go Go's is there too.
