The city market was not what I expected. I thought there might be more food vendors with some local fare and local artisans. In my opinion it was vendors who purchased stuff from other places and sold just like a flea market.

Good but the main isle is often blocked by families with small children and only one food vendor but some of crafts are very good.

This is a nice market filled with all sorts of things including sweetgrass baskets of all shapes and sizes. There is a confederate museum above the market floor. Part of the market has AC and there are restrooms. A good place for a quick visit.
