Notes:

Although this was by no means the first market in the colony--it was first built between 1788 and 1804, and the present building in 1841, still there are few old cities that can boast of anything more interesting. In the days gone by, the head of the house, with a slave carrying the large market basket, went here to purchase the home supplies.
