My friend and I stumbled onto this gem and were delighted. Lots of local vendors selling oh, pretty much everything having to do with Charleston. Very historic, too. Would love to have gone into the museum, but we had a flight to catch and couldn't. That said, the shopping was terrific.

It has the perfect location for just strolling through the ships or dining at the restaurants. The black fadora is one of my new favorite places in the square. The is a city garage off Cumberland st, 2 blocks down, that allows you to pay for parking with debit cards. The City Market offers a wide variety of mostly homemade... More

Worth a visit if just to watch the locals weave the sweet-grass baskets. The structure is not really a square but a series of rectangular structures that cover a couple of blocks.
