I was expecting more of a market atmosphere...tents with local vendors, produce, arts and crafts, etc. Instead there's a few shops and bars. Nothing much to see or do. The shops were nice, I was just expecting more of a market at City Market.

We visited City Market in Savannah in the evening and enjoyed the live music. The atmosphere is fun and their hospitality is classic southern charm.

Everytime I visit the town of Savannah, I make it a point to visit the City Market. All the shops, restaurants and other local attractions are all walking distance from the City Market...And let's not forget The Savannah River, simply beautiful.

Something for everyone here, cool plaza with lots of varied shops and bars...YOU CAN WALK AROUND WITH A DRINK IN YOUR HAND! She wants to shop, you drink. Kids want candy/cookies, you drink. You want to sit in the plaza, you drink. She wants a drink, you drink. What's not to love??

Every night we stopped by there was music. One night a great 80's band, another night a country singer, another night an Indy rock style band. Some cute shops and great restaurants. Is absolutely worth visiting.

Strolled through the city market over the Thanksgiving Holiday . Several nice little stores along the way . Actually like a small main street without the traffic. They had a band playing at one end .

Being from Charleston, South Carolina I was expecting a real Historic downtown Market Place. This is nothing like that. It is a couple of blocks closed off and turned into a tourist attraction, expensive art shops mostly the same things you see on the Riverfront. A few good places to eat and some common ones as well. Even though it... More

I was disappointed after seeing the Charleston City Market. The shops were the same as the ones on River Street and there really wasn't anything above average.

I love it for the art. I stay for the pralines. There are loads of art galleries , little boutiques and other small shops you won't find anywhere else in the world. For historic downtown it is fairly accessible by wheelchair. They areas that are difficult to reach there is always some polite soul willing to help you with. Once... More

We didn't really research this area as we assumed it to be a farmers market or an open market similar to Charleston's. Turned out to be a plaza on a closed street with galleries, bars, restaurants and businesses. Despite our confusion, we enjoyed a stroll through the area, had a couple drinks outside and visited a couple stores. It was... More
