Old City Farmers' Market
This exciting market, held in the St. Augustine Amphitheater, is a weekly event that brings together local farmers, chefs, artists and more. Every Saturday morning, the market comes alive with vendors and shoppers. Some of the more popular items available for sale include flowers and fresh produce, but there are also plenty of homemade foods for sale, free samples from local restaurants and even works of art created by talented local artists. This is a great way to get to know the local culture a little better and to pick up some one-of-a-kind souvenirs to take home.
Belz Factory Outlet World
Although there are two different outlet malls in St. Augustine, Belz Factory Outlet World is the busiest and most popular with locals. It boasts more than 50 different stores and retailers offering their goods at low prices. Keep in mind that this outlet mall does not contain many high-end brand names, but it is a great place for bargain shopping.
This fascinating street in the historic downtown section of St. Augustine is a great place to visit boutique shops, find souvenirs, and explore some independent eateries and cafes. Orange Street is also home to more than a dozen different art galleries. Some boast works by local artists, and many others have beautiful paintings, sketches, and sculptures from artists in places as diverse as Italy and Japan. For shoppers looking to find some beautiful art to take home as a souvenir, Orange Street is certainly the top destination in the city.
St. Augustine Premium Outlets
This outlet mall in St. Augustine is the more upscale of the two in the area. This outdoor shopping center is a great way to enjoy the nice weather and still find some great clothing, jewelry, footwear, accessories, toys, and home furnishings. Some of the more popular brands located in the St. Augustine Premium Outlets include Coach, Tommy Bahama, Polo Ralph Lauren and Calvin Klein, just to name a few.
St. George Street
Visitors to St. Augustine will almost always include a trip to St. George Street on their itinerary. This historic street is home to some truly impressive colonial architecture and historical landmarks, but many visitors are surprised to learn that it is also a prime shopping destination. Although many of the stores are definitely aimed toward tourists, there are still some wonderful independent retailers selling amazing clothing, accessories, and souvenirs along St. George Street.
