The One Of A Kind Market You Won’t Find Anywhere Else In South Carolina

South Carolina is home to various flea markets, farmers markets and craft fairs all around the state. Markets like these are a melting pot for cultural flair, for finding locally made and sourced items and as a meeting spot for communities to come together.

Charleston’s City Market has been a melting pot for all of the above since 1804. In the beginning the sheds that make up this popular city market primarily housed meat, vegetable and fish vendors, each paying $1.00 per day for their space – $2.00 if their table had a marble slab.

Today, not much has changed at the market. The buildings erected centuries ago remain a major center of commerce making this market one-of-a-kind in South Carolina.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing.

We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now:

A perfect time to wrap this market into a visit to Charleston would be during the annual Spoleto USA Festival and Piccolo Spoleto Festival. There’s Nothing Better Than This Epic Festival In South Carolina.
