  • If you can't find something here you should've stayed home. More variety then a person could imagine, a great day trip!  more »
  • I always park in the garage connected to the back of Thornes so I end up going through there and finding something I love. It's got great quirky little shops, a few little cafe's, Paul and Elizabeth's...  more »
  • Typical small town market - clothing you'd never wear that has been there since the 90's - they don't have the Zara model.... but hey.... there's something for every one  more »

  • Like a mall made by hippies and hipsters, For complete lack of a better description. Absolutely chock full of interesting small stores and boutiques - including the legendary Harel's ice cream - this is the perfect spot to begin any Northampton experience. In many ways it's almost like a microcosm of the town itself. In any case, it's by far my favorite place to just walk and browse, particularly in the winter months when it's too cold to do that outside. Just be prepared to pay a pretty penny for parking - although helpfully there is a parking garage and you don't necessarily have to track down street parking.
  • Nice old worldly shopping experience, something between a mall and an indoor market. Good selection of places for gifts with many stores/stands that have home made items. There are a lot of places that have cute gift ideas for Christmas or special occasions. That staff overall were very helpful, would definately recommend to anyone to go for a visit. A nice way to spend a few hours browsing and shopping for lovely little things.
  • Fun and funky Northampton destination! Good spot for coffee, books, clothing, and fun items. Surrounded by more great Northampton stores and restaurants and bars. Right next to the parking garage with a connecting catwalk (first hour parking is free!).
  • This is a taste of Northampton. Cute stores, well thought out. What a great thing in the community.
  • This mini Mall of an assortment of eclectic little stores goes back to when I visited Northampton in the 1970's. It is in a multi story building on Main Street and has numerous store fronts but the original buildings ceiling, (they have 4 walls and separate entrances but are open on the top a few feet short of walls top and all share the common buildings ceiling. The building just went through a $750,000.00 face lift this year. New store fronts, highly polished dark stained wood floors and new lighting as well as some new stores to reach 100% occupancy.
