Time permitting; you will be able to spend time in the Old City Market, an open air market dating back to 1841. The market, originally a food market, sold meat, fish and fresh locally grown produce. Today, more than 100 vendors sell everything from local foods to souvenirs. The most celebrated residents are the local women who make and sell sweet-grass baskets. The craft of basket-weaving, passed down from West African slaves, is considered one of Charleston's most timeless traditions.
