Downtown Phoenix may not be the city's most popular shopping destination, but don't underestimate the number of cool, unique boutiques and stores you'll find in this burgeoning city center.
When you're in downtown Phoenix, the CityScape shopping and entertainment district is a convenient place to pick up some new wardrobe pieces. There's an Urban Outfitters, Charming Charlie's and JoS. A. Bank on site.
Just north of downtown, the weekly Phoenix Public Market is open every Saturday, showcasing some of the region's freshest produce, fruits and locally crafted food items. It's a good spot to pick up some locally made crafts and food items.
Searching for that perfect unique gift item for a special friend, family member, or significant other? Phoenix has a growing roster of independent local boutiques where you'll find one of a kind apparel and gift items that showcase the talents of the city's best designers and artists.
We recommend a stop at Bunky Boutique, an eclectic shop with a wide assortment of apparel created by the shop's catalog of featured local designers.
Frances in central Phoenix is another destination for unique and whimsical gift items, including vintage wares, hand-made jewelry, apparel and novelty items.
Finally, visitors to central Phoenix may want to plan a special trip to Made, an art gallery and boutique featuring high quality pieces from local designers and artists. You'll find paintings, artisan paper products, books and gift items that will let you take a little piece of Phoenix back home with you.
