Shopping

The charm and character of Marin’s unique cities are reflected in its many neighborhood shopping districts.  Each community in Marin offers shoppers something unique for every taste and wish.  Located within the communities of Marin are boutiques, antique stores, fine arts and one-of-a-kind crafts, handmade gifts, and home furnishings.  Art galleries are scattered throughout Marin, many of them filled with the work of local artists.

In addition to the local community shops, Marin also hosts regional and nationally-known retailers, located in a number of shopping centers throughout the county.  From Vintage Oaks at Novato to Northgate Mall in San Rafael, to the beautiful high-end outdoor shopping destinations in Corte Madera to the many retail plazas strategically placed throughout Mill Valley and Larkspur, and all the way up through San Anselmo and Fairfax.  But let’s not forgot the organic finds and eclectic shops scattered through the hills of West Marin / Point Reyes.
