The Charleston City Market, one of Charleston's most colorful relics, has survived a tumultuous past, out lasting tornadoes, hurricanes, a major earthquake and devastation by fires and bombardment from without and within.

Market Hall is used by the United Daughters of the Confederacy for the preservation of articles of historic interest connected with the War Between the States. Below Market Hall, built in 1841, was a spacious portico which was used as a meat and fish market. For sanitation purposes the three buildings behind Market Hall, which sold fruits and vegetables with other produce brought direct from island plantations were set apart.

When visiting Charleston, the City Market is a must-see! Four buildings span from Meeting Street to East Bay Street. An assortment of wares is sold by hundreds of vendors. Sweet grass basket weavers can be seen in every building, along with, local artists, jewelry, tapestry, souvenirs, church dolls, afghans, rugs, rice, beans and sauces, local candies and cookies and much more. The horse and carriages gallop by with people from all over the world, and restaurants line both North and South Market street.
