Montgomery Village Shopping Center

In Santa Rosa, in central Sonoma County, any day is a good shopping day. In beautiful weather, consider a stroll around historic Railroad Square or Courthouse Square, both downtown and full of small, owner-run shops. And if it turns hot (or rainy, or cold), check out Santa Rosa shopping at a covered outdoor mall or one of the indoor malls offering a comfortable day of browsing in any weather!

This recently renovated area includes a spacious city plaza bordered by outdoor bistro tables, market umbrellas, and flower boxes. Of the many stores in the area, two feature local artistry. The first is Corrick’s, serving Santa Rosa for over 100 years. In addition to cards and gifts, they are justly proud of their Art Trails Gallery, which features local works from around the county. The second is Made Local Marketplace, which offers more than 700 items made in the North Bay (primarily Sonoma County), including foods, clothing, jewelry, and gifts. Two more can’t-miss shops in this area include Kindred Fair Trade, with a global collection of gifts, jewelry, and clothing for every age, and Treehorn Books, a book lover’s dream with floor-to-ceiling picks, plus rare and vintage books.

Stroll the same street with a different vibe — historic and quirky Railroad Square offers stores you may not find anywhere else. Begin with Green Fish Trading, filled with exquisite, museum-quality Asian antiques. The owner imports his favorite finds and unique treasures from Japan and Tibet. Wander the quaint streets for the experience, and keep your eyes out for an antique emporium and jewelry and fashion shops. Pop into a welcome restaurant or Santa Rosa coffee shop. Remember to stop by the Santa Rosa Visitor Center to pick up information for your next outing.

Montgomery Village

A charming village within a city. Park the car and stroll the sidewalks. Whether you love classic, cutting-edge, or simply chic looks, you’ll be delighted by the offerings of men’s and women’s clothing, as well as gifts and home furnishing in the national retail stores and local boutiques found here. In need of a little pampering? Hair salons and a rejuvenating full-service spa are also available in the village. Then, head to Boudin Bakery or a convenient Santa Rosa coffee shop for a pick-me-up. You can also enjoy art shows, events, and concerts throughout the year.

Located slightly north and west of downtown proper, Coddingtown is easily accessed from Highway 101 and covers all your shopping bases, including a very popular Nordstrom’s Rack and Macy’s on one end and an extensive Whole Foods and JC Penny on the other with a midpoint anchor of Target. It’s easy to make your way to your favorite shops and enjoy some excellent food — including Sea Noodle Bar and a sizable hot and cold takeout selection at Whole Foods that features a salad bar.
