Market Square, Charleston
(3.5/5 based on 600+ reviews on the web)
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.
