Market Square, Charleston

(750+ reviews on the web)
Flea Market
Visit Market Square and shop for gourmet foods, collectibles, art, millinery, children's clothing, and the area's famous sweetgrass baskets. Wander through the Greek Revival-style great market hall that was built in 1841 and is now a National Registered Landmark. Inside, check out some fishing gear or stop for lunch. Then explore the open-air sheds outside where you can pick up authentic Southern spice mix,  pickles, preserves, or locally made wafers. Be sure to visit the basket ladies, who weave baskets using a traditional method of African origin, passed down through the generations. It couldn't be easier to arrange your visit to Market Square and many more Charleston attractions: make an itinerary online using Inspirock's Charleston trip generator.
