Market Square

Since 1804, the Old City Market has been the cultural hub of Charleston where merchants and civilians mingled. What started as ramshackle sheds housing meats, vegetables, and fish is now a gorgeous community embraced modern farmers market. Both indoor and out, the Old City Market has only grown in significance over the years, now playing home to over 300 vendors. No matter what you're wanting to take away from Charleston, you can definitely find it here. Eat lunch in the Great Hall and go shopping for souvenirs, apparel, artisan goods and crafts in the market or wait until Saturday for the Night Market's special events and activities.

This is a wonderful opportunity to experience the vibrancy of Charleston and to see the town light up with color and culture. The Day Market operates daily from 9:30 am-5:30 pm while the Night Market runs Friday and Saturday from March through December from 6:30-10:30 pm.
