In the spirit of old Savannah, the historic City Market is alive and bustling, welcoming guests of all ages to enjoy its charming ambiance. In 1755, City Market was where fishermen and farmers brought their wares and where horse-drawn carriages brought people to meet, shop and socialize. Back then, it was Savannah’s social and commercial gathering spot. Though the original structures did not survive various fires, demolition and the eventuality of progress, a group of history enthusiasts worked to revive the City Market and due to their efforts, it is once again a center of activity.
Today, visitors and residents come for the restaurants, pubs, unique shops, museums and galleries. There’s also a vibrant night-life including live music and entertainment in the courtyards. And to many visitors, a horse-drawn carriage ride brings back the nostalgic beauty of the Original City Market.
