Charleston City Market
As opposed to the Old Slave Mart, a more benign form of commerce unfolded at Charleston City Market, established in 1804. For more than two centuries, it has served as the primary place for city’s residents to buy produce, fish, and meat. While some of the 140 merchants here continue to sell raw ingredients, for the traveler visiting Charleston those selling crafts, including the famous sweetgrass baskets, and gourmet goods like preserves, honey, grits, and pralines are likely to be of more interest. Travel back in time as you shop and taste your way around Charleston on one of the 12 itineraries created by AFAR’s Travel Advisory Council at AFAR Journeys.
