Lots of shops and restaurants in a festive atmosphere for a nice afternoon or evening outing. Has a downtown feel with a very eclectic vibe. Beautiful landscaping with fountains and benches to relax or just people watch. Eat outside at Gordon Biersch or enjoy one of several dining in experiences.

Everytime we visit this place we find something else we like about it. Find The Roasted Bean for good coffee, Crepe Creation Cafe for the biggest and best crepes ever, and make sure you go to the movie theater there. We are both senior citizens and got to see a new release in the afternoon for $5 each! (For this... More

The Market Commons does not offer the most extensive shopping experience but does have some unique shops. The Piggly Wiggley has an extensive wine and beer selection and the Saturday farmers market on Deville Street has a decent selection of local produce. There are 11 restaurants in Market Commons, (of which Gordon Biersch, Nacho Hippo, and the Brass Tap are... More

Great off the path shopping and dining choices. Small Towne atmosphere with quaint streets and shops. Nice parks with fountains and a real safe feeling. Great way to stroll after dinner and relax.

A great place to hang out, shop and have dinner while in Myrtle Beach. We had dinner at PF Changs and browsed through Barnes and nobles. Great shops and restaurants.

Can't say enough great things about this location. After a few days of the same stretch of restaurants, souvenir shops, and predictable huge crowds at Broadway at the beach.....this was a breath of fresh air. Beautiful scenery. Beautiful homes. Great restaurants. We loved Market Common and Gordon Biersch so much, we went back for a second night and visited Tupelo... More

Aside from several great places to eat, there is a nice theater and good shopping! It was nice to rake a break from the sand, eat dinner at Nacho Hippo, see a movie, and then browse through Barnes and Noble.

We like visiting here for Nacho Hippo! While there we browse the shops which are higher end than you will find elsewhere in MB. A great Piggly Wiggly grocery is there, too. There's an expansive area to let kids run and a great playground.

Of the 3 shopping areas we visited, this was the best. Parking was easy and along the shoppes. At least one side of the street was in the shade. We particularly like the Tommy Bahama shop and the local B&N.

Market Common was the most "civilized" non-touristy spot was visited in Myrtle Beach. Nice restaurants and shops, Barnes & Noble and just pleasantly quiet compared to every place else. This is probably not the place frequented by the people who save up all year to come to Myrtle Beach. The restaurants are more upscale and trendy, as are the shops,... More
