Downtown Gainesville is a great place to visit and shop. While shopping, take some time to try one of the 31 downtown eateries.

Union Street Station pedestrian mall, located on SE 2nd Avenue next to the Hippodrome Theatre, is a great place to begin shopping around downtown Gainesville. You'll find fashions for men and women at Calzatura & Ego and Persona Vintage Clothing, and gift's at Simply Gorgeous. On Wednesday afternoons the Farmers' Market brings hundreds of visitors and locals downtown for fresh locally grown vegetables, fresh-baked pastries, crafts, clothing and surprises. Live music is provided by local artists on the adjacent downtown pavilion stage. Some of Gainesville’s finest dining is found downtown, with eateries ranging from local and national coffee shops to Cuban pastries to micro-brew at the Market Street Pub, to chef-owned restaurants and sushi, including Mark’s US Prime and Dragonfly Sushi.
