Shopping

Monterey County's shopping scene is full of great deals and extraordinary surprises, from fine art to locally owned boutiques and everything in between.

In addition to personal attention and unique, affordable goods, shoppers in Monterey County enjoy variety. The region's stores, studios and retail centers are as diverse as its beach, mountain and vineyard landscapes. That means the perfect purchase is never hard to find.
