ON A SHADED BENCH UNDER THE SPRAWLING LIVE OAKS IN SCARBOROUGH FAIRE, YOU’LL FEEL TRANSPORTED TO A TIME BEFORE COOKIE-CUTTER MINI-MALLS WITH THEIR NEON SIGNS AND PRISTINE MANICURED LAWNS.
In our open-air market, you’ll find yourself in the perfect place to enjoy a summertime ice cream cone, get lost in the pages of a best seller, or browse our unique shops for hidden treasure. Here at Scarborough Faire, amidst the natural setting, the artisans, and the families shopping, the atmosphere experienced is decidedly more like that of a park than a shopping center.
But make no mistake – Scarborough Faire is more than just a browser’s delight, it’s a true shopper’s paradise. From tasteful home décor to tailored Tommy Bahama shirts or women’s plus-sized fashions, fantastic finds abound. From everyday kitchen and bath supplies to fine crystal, sculpture, and artwork of every description, toys for girls and boys of all ages – treasures by any measure await your discovery. You’ll find scrumptious old-fashioned candy treats, fudge, ice cream, snacks, and delicious Eastern Carolina barbeque, not to mention knock-your-socks-off, award-winning yet unpretentious wining and dining tucked into our garden enclave!
