Charleston Historic Market is one of the area’s must see attractions. Having survived a tumultuous past, the Market has outlasted tornadoes, hurricanes, a major earthquake and devastation by fires and Civil War bombardment. Over 200 years ago, a wealthy Charleston family willed land to the town of Charleston to be used as a public market, with the stipulation that the property revert to the family if used for any other purpose. To this day, the charming Charleston City Market is a popular destination for visitors and locals alike.
The Charleston City Market is one of the nation’s oldest public markets and the cultural heart of Charleston. Home to more than 300 vibrant entrepreneurs, the market is open every day of the year except December 25th. No matter what time of day or season you plan to visit, there is something to see, do, taste, and take home as a souvenir from the Charleston City Market!
Charleston City Day Market operates daily from 9:30am-6pm in three open air shets as well as the Great Hall.
Charleston City Night Market operates on Fridays & Saturdays, from April through December, from 6:30-10:30pm.
