When it comes to shopping in St. Augustine, I’d like to think we have it all. Beautiful historic downtown has every quaint and unique store you could ever imagine. Whether you’re looking for jewelry, souvenirs, clothing, home décor items or sweet treats you will find a shop that has it in the historic section of downtown.
For the serious shopper we have the outlet malls, two of them in fact. This is where you will find designer and name brand stores. The St. Augustine Outlets and the Prime Outlets are located just off of 95 and Rt 16. There are roughly 200 stores out there including a Gander Mountain, which carries sports and recreational clothing and equipment.
 St. Augustine Beach also has several unique gift shops and clothing stores. Our outdoor markets on Wednesdays at the Saint Augustine Pier, Saturdays at  the amphitheater and Sundays at Marineland are great to visit. Here you will find local and organic food, local honey and unique crafts from the area. Our outdoor markets will give you a  sense of what our wonderful community is all about. 
We hope you enjoy shopping here in St. Augustine.  If you have any questions you can always “Ask a Local,” We will answer your question the best we can within 24 hours.
