Merchants Square
Merchants Square began in 1928 as a vision of revitalization by John D. Rockefeller, Jr., the son of the Standard Oil CEO. The plan was to relocate the scattered shops in the district to a central location along what is now known as Duke of Gloucester Street, between the College of William & Mary and the Historic District. Merchants Square was designed to incorporate the many perspectives that helped shape the British Colonial and early American landscape, mixing the designs of American architects, such as Thomas Jefferson, with the building influences of Caribbean warehouses.

Today, Merchants Square boasts more than 40 shops and restaurants, from Colonial-inspired souvenirs, a classic candy store and a William & Mary campus store, to cooking and kitchen supplies, men’s and women’s fashion, fine jewelry and accessories and quaint bookstores. Local restaurants entice visitors with a wide range of rich and savory entrées for breakfast, lunch and dinner, and some places even provide live musical entertainment for guests to enjoy while they dine.

Merchants Square hosts an abundant number of events each week. Several restaurants host local bands and musicians to provide live music while you dine throughout the week. Stop by during the holiday season for the annual Christmas Tree Lighting and ice skating.

From March through November, Merchants Square hosts a weekly farmers market every Saturday from 8 a.m. to noon. At the farmers market, you are sure to walk away with the best in locally-sourced vegetables, pasture-raised meats, fresh bread, homemade pastries, eggs and more.
 
With so much to see and do while in Merchants Square, it’s worth spending the day!
