    Cute Area
    I stayed in a heavy hotel, so we were often walking through the City Market. It's a little of everything! Souvenir stores, good food, quaint cozy lighting and a welcoming environment. Started my morning here and found it to be one of my favorite areas of Savannah. Put City Market on your list! Don't miss it!

    Worth the visit!
    A great place for shopping, dining and people watching. Would have like to have music or live entertainment consistently playing as you stroll through the market. Other than the lack of entertainment in the centre of the market, good vibes all around. A must visit.

    Fun little Hang Out
    City Market is almost always a nice little place to hang out, hit a few stores, and grab a bite in the cafe or pizza joint. Located in a nearly perfect spot, you can head one direction and hit River Street, or head the other and hit all of the Main Street shops in downtown Savannah. Plan plenty of time if it’s your first time visiting; there’s a lot to see and much to experience.

Fun spot to hang out! Just be careful after dark. Some sketchy characters to keep an eye on.
Plenty of shopping, bars, restaurants to choose from. Got our Byrd's cookies on!

Downtown Savannah has lots of lovely areas to stroll around and take in the sights. This one has the advantage that the small area it occupies is closed to traffic and has a variety of stores and restaurants. Many cities have similar areas and this one is a little on the small side and pretty ordinary. Still one of the better locations to just sit though I liked the river side area better.

Some cute shops and restaurants are plenty in the area, although none were tried. Would like to have seen more Savannah original shops.

There are so many great, local shops and artists available here. The prices are very reasonable (for example, I picked up notecards with Savannah sites and will frame them as artwork for just $15).

We browsed the shops at the City Market for 20 minutes or so and didn’t find anything special. Very average boutiques and some nice candy shops, nothing more.

Not very impressed with the City Market in Savannah; it is a series of stores, not fresh vegetables or fruit and no farmers. It is a pleasant enough area for walking

City Market is a pedestrian friendly area between Franklin and Ellis Squares in historic downtown Savannah. While there one may visit the Prohibition Museum, shops, and restaurants, or simply relax on a bench and watch the people stroll by.
