Shopping at Market Street and The Woodlands Mall

Shopping at The Woodlands Mall
Shopping and dining at Market Street is spread over 34 acres, offering shoppers an opportunity to stroll from store to store in a vibrant, pedestrian-oriented environment. Central Park offers a natural retreat with a landscaped area with an interactive children's fountain that's an excellent gathering place. The park boasts an entertainment stage that is an ideal venue for jazz concerts and community events. Market Street is known not only for its unique selection of boutique shops, but also for its restaurants, several of which are unique to the Houston area like Jasper's and Tommy Bahama's Café.

As a leading shopping destination in the Greater Houston area, The Woodlands Mall has further enhanced its regional reputation by adding more nationally known names to its already impressive list of more than 200 retailers. The Woodlands Mall also added six popular restaurants, including PF Chang's and Cheesecake Factory, in the outdoor lifestyle area at the edge of The Woodlands Waterway®. Children especially enjoy the enchanted Woodlands play area and the full-sized carousel at The Woodlands Mall. One of the original draws to The Woodlands, this classic indoor carousel runs year round.

The Fountain features a 120-foot long, 10-foot high water wall, flanked by stairs and stepped water cascades at each side of the Square. A waterfall cascades down the water wall to a pool along the lower terrace. Water jets, waterfalls and cascades are designed to create a variety of displays and effects ranging from the subtle flow of water over a stone wall to dancing columns of water, to "boomer" jets that can shoot water 75 feet in the air.
