Score (8.5 out of 10)

Marin County’s premier shopping center, the Village at Corte Maderarepresents super-chic shops and super-chic people. Basically, the Stanford Shopping Center of Marin County.


A minor renovation was completed early December 2005. It updated the walkways with playful art, fountains, an outdoor fire pit, and a fresh coat of paint.


The Village has unique architecture and high-end national retailers that make it worth a visit alone. Among others, you’ll find an Anthropologie, Coach, Restoration Hardware, Pottery Barn, Martin+Osa, and Banana Republic. The Macy’s isn’t full-scale; only two floors.


The mall is lacking many restaurants and they closed the food court. However, there is a Boudin Bakery and The Cheesecake Factory.


Instead of being surrounded by a parking lot, This shopping center lays entirely on one side. The parking lot is then concentrated on the east side. The truly adventurous could try the limited number of parking spaces on the west side, but you’ll need lots of good luck. Nonetheless, regardless of the distance away from the center, we found parking to be relatively easy.


The Village is conveniently located in Corte Madera CA, at Hwy 101 and the east side of Paradise Drive.
