If you enjoy buying goods and gifts from small local shops, Lexington is the place for you. You'll find a wide array of mom-and-pop shops, trendy boutiques and unique gift stores all around the city.
A trip to the South should always include a visit to an old country store like Four Oaks Farm. Housed in an 85-year-old farmhouse, this country store has been owned and operated by the Mathias family for more than four generations and offers old-fashioned country products and farm fresh local produce. The selection of goods includes salted gourmet pecans, homemade jams and jellies, cider and souvenir gift boxes packed with grits, syrups, local meats and more.
On Saturdays throughout the summer months, head down to The Market at Icehouse and enjoy browsing the many booths selling local produce and artisan crafts at this Main Street farmers market.
Throughout the city, you'll find an array of boutiques, including The Auburn Mermaid, a clothing store located in the center of the Main Street district. Other local apparel shops include Aiden Lane and Southern Blu Boutique. For high fashion, there's 831 Minh Le, offering couture items from Vietnamese designer Minh Le, whose work was featured in Charleston Fashion Week 2018.
