Tannery Marketplace – Newburyport
Restaurants and Shopping in Historic Mill Buildings
Tannery Marketplace shopping & delicious delights
The Tannery Marketplace, located in Newburyport’s South End, is a popular destination for locals and tourists to shop, dine or just hang out. The Tannery, which combines two historic mill buildings and two new buildings spanning across both sides of Merrimac Street, is home to dozens of one-of-a-kind shops and experiences as well as great places to eat.
From Black Duck Market & Deli which offers snacks and sandwiches, to not one, but two, delicious Thai restaurants—Brown Sugar serving up traditional cuisine and The Joy Nest with a speakeasy atmosphere and street vendor-inspired menu—there is something for every appetite.
Searching for the perfect gift or a treat for yourself? The Tannery is filled with unique shopping featuring items like toys, books, home goods, and more. Pop into Beach Plum Flower Shop for the perfect flower arrangement or swing by Port Plum for an amazing selection of olive oils and specialty cooking supplies. And make sure to visit Gentry’s Consignment to scan their everchanging racks of upscale fashion at affordable prices. For the biking enthusiast, Riverside Cycle, which sells bikes, biking supplies, and also offers repairs, is a must-visit.
Along with shopping and dining, the Tannery is also a destination for experiences. Love the spotlight? Try out a class at the Actors Studio of Newburyport. Hoping for a deep tissue massage? Make an appointment with Body By Fisher Therapeutic massage. Or maybe you want to tap into your creative side? Book a session with the Newburyport Art Association or just swing by to get inspiration from works on display by local artists. The list goes on and on with experiences like children’s dance, musical instrument lessons, yoga classes, and salons.
The beautiful mill buildings are so inviting that some people come just to spend time. Along the hallways are tables where family and friends can hang out and people can relax and read a book or newspaper.
On Sundays, The Tannery Marketplace is also home to the Newburyport Farmers’ Market, which runs from May to November. Local vendors sell fresh fruits, vegetables, meats, cheese, wine, art, jewelry and more, accompanied by live music.
Newburyport is always a destination to shop and dine. Next time you plan a day or night out, don’t forget to head south of downtown to visit all the local companies you can support at the Tannery Marketplace too.
