Savannah City Market – Shopping, Dining, Art, & Entertainment

August 26th, 2019 by Corey Edwards

Savannah City MarketSavannah City Market is four blocks of open-air shopping, dining, art, entertainment, and history. In fact, with little exception, the property has been Savannah’s central marketplace since the 1700’s!

When it comes to shopping, dining, art, entertainment, and history, the city of Savannah has it all. Not every part of the city has as strong a concentration of all these things as the City Market, however. Just 2 blocks from River Street, by 1755 the spot was already a bustling hive of farmers, fishers, and tradespeople hawking their wares.

Yet Savannah City Market has long been more than just a simple center of commerce.

While 18th century Savannahians would not recognize today’s City Market, they would definitely be familiar with its position as an important city social hub. So important, in fact, that even a series of devastating changes and disasters could not keep the City Market down. (more…)
