    CHARLESTON CITY MARKET

    Historic Charleston City Market was built on land ceded to the city by Revolutionary War veteran Charles Cotesworth Pinckney in 1788—with a stipulation that it be used solely as a public market in perpetuity. Today the stunning brick market houses small, unique shops selling locally made goods like sweetgrass baskets, artwork, jewelry, woven baskets, fruits and vegetables.
