Many different shops & vendors to walk along and see, particularly on a nice, sunny day. Go check this out & support local vendors and get good deals in the process!

My 7 year old daughter loved the market! So did my mom and me so basically good for all ages. Loved the representation of all Charleston history. Still have a lovely Christmas table runner I purchased that I happily put out every year.
