“Good selection of outside shops”
Reviewed April 16, 2013

Really enjoyed shopping here. The jb Penney was very good and there are several good stores like target, best buys, Barnes and noble and many more. We went there just to buy a suitcase band had lunch at the cafe in Barnes and noble. Got the shuttle back to our hotel.

“bring your big wallet”
Reviewed March 27, 2013

neat collection of popular stores and restaurants. we tried this destination on a Saturday nite and the wait at every eating establishment was over an hour. Entertainment on the square. Nice enough place to spend an evening; but, prices are way up there.

“Love the location”
Reviewed March 20, 2013

My husband and I went here after dinner one night, and loved just strolling. We did take a break to rest our feet, I got an iced tea at Coffee Bean and Tea, and we sat at the huge fireplace surrounded by a water feature on comfy soft furniture that they have set up at either end of the mall. So relaxing, I didn't want to leave.

This is a nice large outdoor mall with beautiful water features and fireplaces which to sit around. There are many stores including the anchor stores like Best Buy,Target and Penny's. I enjoyed the items in World Market and bought some things that are difficult to find elswhere. I wanted to write a review on the Greek Pita restaurant there, but couldn't find a previous review. I found the gyros so good here! They are some of the very best and full of meat.I will have to try other items on their menu. You can spend an day here walking through only some of the stores! There is a Harkin movie theater in the food court area too. Easy on and off the 202 loop.

“Prefer the Mills Mall more”
Reviewed October 6, 2012

The shops here are all outside, so you walk around in the hea (40!!!) and in and out of shops. This was hot work and I prefer the Mills Mall where it was all in AC comfort.

The shops were ok at the Marketplace, more on offer at Mill Malls I though. There is no Barnes and Noble at the Mills Mall where there was at the Marketplace. We spent about 3 hours at the Marketplace and then 1.5 days at the Mills Mall
