Haute Country Mart: A Malibu Marketplace

With endless dining and shopping options, those who visit the Malibu Country Mart will realize that everything they need rests within six acres off Pacific Coast Highway. Known for celebrity shoppers and families looking to eat, shop and explore all in one visit, this mart is far from anything you would ever find in the country.

The dining options at the Malibu Country Mart are endless, from a quick meal at Howdy’s Taqueria to fine dining at Tra Di Noi, an unbelievable Italian restaurant that locals and visitors favor. Though the mart is known for having great restaurants, they also provide perfect stops along your shopping and exploring way. Malibu Kitchen & Gourmet Country Market is the perfect place to grab an oversized chocolate chip cookie and any other pastry you could imagine. In a similar fashion, those craving a chocolate fix visit K-Chocolatier for upscale chocolates with unique flavor combinations.

This mart is considered a shopping haven for those who love a mixture of high end boutiques with famous designers and upscale stores. Boutique favorites include Madison, a store that fills ever shelf and rack with unique and well known designers and carries the best accessories available in Malibu. Another boutique favorite is Ron Herman, where the perfect vintage sweatshirt or tee can be purchased.

As for familiar designers, Ralph Lauren has both a men’s and women’s store for those looking for a Ralph Lauren piece they might not be able to find elsewhere. Other familiar favorites include 7 For All Mankind for jeans as well as MAC Cosmetics. Though you may have seen these stores before, most have a unique touch, such as multiple stores for men and women as well as multi-levels for shopping.

Though most people visit the mart to eat out, shop or people watch, many choose to visit the fine art gallery. The Tracy Park Gallery is a mart favorite for those looking to purchase or explore emerging as well as famous artist’s work and pieces.

If you choose to take an exploration within, Malibu Acupuncture and Herbs provides trained and specialized acupuncturists to perform various treatments as well as supply herbs and medicines for internal healing.

With over six acres of high end shops, restaurants and everything else you can imagine, try not to let the name fool you: this is anything but your average country mart.
