  • Got some great buys here. Charleston is beautiful.
  • Go see the dreadlock man selling the 100% raw Shea butter... It's a good price and he knows everything about it! Great product...
  • Sweet grass baskets and benne wafers are quintessential souvenirs, made in local communities in the Gullah tradition. Green Guide Editor
  • A must do for all first time visitors!
  • They say that slaves were never sold there... But ask someone Geechee from downtown about the market and their ancestors and see what they tell you!
  • Tourist trap.
  • AWESOME wares and handicrafts from local Charlestonians and Gullah/Geechee folk. Bring cash and walk all the way through to the end. SLOWLY. And smile; if you're nice, the vendors are quite generous.
  • Perfect time of year for "locals" in The Market! Plenty of parking lots, etc. less crowded. And... Sweet CeCe's is RIGHT HERE! :)
  • You must walk the market at least once! Kind of like a flea market just a tad bit classier :)
  • Knock it down and put a walmart there. It has been totally ruined by the recent renovations. It used all to be open air. Now it resembles Walmart more than the old familiar slave market.
  • The vendors are artists and craftsmen! It's not a generic Flea market.. Please be nice to vendors! They are people too!
  • Support your local artists in the market! You'd be shocked to see what you can't find in the gallery.
  • Fun place to visit and walk. A must for first-timers
  • See the lady selling bead animals. Very sturdy, and worth 10 bucks. P.S. Kids! Use your allowance and get a discount!
  • Found a wonderful hat!!!!
  • it's not a slave market!!slaves were sold on the custom house stairs.
  • Love it! Bought amazing candles from the REWINED stand. Check 'em out - Cool concept, great product.
  • Scarves are beautiful and inexpensive. Free samples are great as well.
  • Laid back atmosphere
  • Prices are a little bit too expensive for a flea market!
