Have a day free? Then try these things in Market Common

There are things for adults to do, but also lots of options for kids. First dates. Friend outings. Here’s one way to spend the day in Market Common.

Start off at Barnes & Noble

It’s strategic: Begin your day in a place with a steady supply of books and coffee! Order your favorite drink at Starbucks on-site. Then peruse aisles of books at Barnes & Noble to add to your TBR pile at home. Pick up a few gifts for the people who didn’t come on vacation with you.


Choose Ivy & Leo as your first stop. It’s a fashionista’s paradise, and you could find your perfect outfit for a nice dinner out.

Try a new restaurant for lunch

Concede the need for something ordinary, and try ZARDIN Healthy Eatery. It’s Market Common’s newest eatery, serving fresh, local fare. Enjoy all-day breakfast items, a salad bar, pressed juices, and more. They also offer kombucha and sparkling waters for your Market Common excursion.


Choose Crepe Creation Cafe. You’ll love the French-themed atmosphere to enjoy steak, seafood, and breakfast all day!
