Great place to spend a long afternoon or evening. Well laid out shopping area with a mix of shops, dining, movies, and even rentals/apartments. Whoever created this concept did a super job. Nice place to spend some time.

We went at dusk and I was under impressed with the lighting, between the building lights off (burned out?) and the over grown trees the walkways were highly shadowed. The side allies to the parking ramps were so overgrown I could not walk down them without brushing bushes. The stores all seem higher end, and exclusive clothing stores. Several of the casual type places are closed. There are several nice food places but the shopping was underwhelming.

We have visited The Market Common (TMC) over the last several years and are very impressed with the continued growth and expansion of this Planned Community.

For those who have not been here, TMC is actually a mix of residences (single family houses and apartments, etc.) stores, service establishments, restaurants, public services, etc., all in a beautifully laid out matrix. Architecturally, the appearance is coordinated with pleasing / brilliant colors and finish features that rival what Disney could accomplish. As a professional planner, I am very impressed the way this community is coming together.

From purely a visitor standpoint, this place is a gem. Great shopping and dining. Go on line for the list of stores and restaurants.


What makes TMC so special (besides how beautiful it is) is how convenient the parking is, how CLEAN the entire place is, and how relaxed the place is. This is an exceptional place.

TMC is not a amusement park for children, although it is kid friendly. I dont believe we will ever visit Myrtle Beach without stopping here. We suggest you visit as well.

My husband and four children accompanied me to Market Common this week. My oldest spent hours in the book store while the youngest loved feeding the wild geese around the pond. Very nice sceneic little place to walk around and do some shopping. We ate at Nacho Hippo which was very good.

Market commons is a nice, quaint shopping area with fun restaurants and a nice movie theater. In the summer, the theater offers a free movie on Tuesdays, which is a nice break from the beach or pool. Fun places to eat and stroll in the evening!
