“Great place to hang out!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2013

We live here and Market Street is one of our favorite destinations locally. The area consists of shops, restaurants, and a large grass covered quad in the center with a fountain with water jets that kids love to get soaked in. In the Fall and Spring, there is generally a free jazz concert on Thursday evenings, which is simulcast like on a local FM radio station. People bring in their lawn chairs and wine coolers and spend the evening there. There are some great restaurants encircling the central lawn and includes Tommy Bahamas on one site and Jasper's on the other. You can site outside facing the lawn at both places. Plus there is a wine bar (Cru) on one side and a small CineArts movie theatre on the other playing the latest movies in an intimate setting. There is also a sushi place and several other restaurant choices. The best place to park is in the garage on the south side of Market Street. Parking is free but it does get busy at times. All in all, it is a great place to spend an afternoon or evening if you are visiting from out of town. Of course, you could make it into a day if you decide to go shopping in the shops that line the area.

“Market Street The Woodlands”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

Market Street was built to replicate a small town Main Street atmosphere with attractive store fronts, movie theatre, restaurants, on street parking, and above shop office space. Central to Market Street is a grassy park like environment with interesting sculptures, beautiful pots of flowers, and a water feature. At Christmas time, a huge tree is erected in this space.

“Locals love Market Street”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

Market Street is a really nice place to visit for eating and shopping. There are a number of restaurants, a couple of good bars, movie theatre and a variety of shopping. It is also across the street from The Woodlands Mall and a couple of blocks from The Waterway where there are more shops and restaurants, a waterway taxi (boat) and outdoor concerts on Spring weekends. There are holiday events for kids (e.g. Halloween trick-or-treating, Christmas music from a huge tree and Santa in a sleigh). Market Street has a small inner park area with water shooting up from the ground where kids love to run and get soaking wet. Overall, a fun and relaxing place to walk around, watch people, and eat good food.

“Outdoor shopping”

There is a lot of shops to visit. It is easy access to get around, they have a trolley you can get on which is free. Also great restaurant 's from sandwich to steaks your choice. Also have a small park area were kids can run around with a small water spouts. It's good to see.

“I chose this to be my home”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

I've lived in 17 states and abroad, and when faced with the opportunity to chose where to make my home, there was no question! Great shopping, restaurants and entertainment within walking distance. I do get annoyed with so many tourists from time to time, but I understand why they want to come here. Advise staying at the Hyatt hotel on Market Street, Maggies for home goods shopping and ladies clothing and accessories, and Jasper's for dinner (the ribs are awesome-- as is everything else). Bring swimsuits for the little ones, and they can dance in the light colored fountains. The theater is adults only in the evening. Take the boat ride (1/4 mile away at the mall) for some fun. The trolley is free (just look for trolley stops) and will take you there. For pizza in this town, try Crust, just a few miles away. You won't regret it. Breakfast-- on the waterway, Hubbell and Hudson on weekends. If there are tickets available, the Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavillion has great shows (within walking distance of Market Street).
