Marin Country Mart
2257 Larkspur Cir., Larkspur
San Francisco’s answer to Los Angeles’s food-and-shopping gem, the Brentwood Country Mart, the Marin iteration is also reliably great. The boutique lineup makes shopping anywhere else feel, frankly, unnecessary; Hero Shop, Jenni Kayne, Intermix, and James Perse next to interiors mecca Hudson Grace and handy gift stores like Sugar Paper. Foodwise, Hog Island Oyster Co. and the Farmshop top our list (there are tons of options). The sheer convenience of having stellar boutiques, restaurants, beauty, wellness, and necessities like shoe repair within one sprawling property cannot be beaten.

The fashion crowd in SF was more than a little excited to find out that Emily Holt, formerly the long-time fashion news editor for Vogue, was bringing her exquisite taste back to her home city in the form of this adorable boutique in the Marin Country Mart. In addition to a great assortment of our favorite fashion brands (Khaite, La Double J, and Sophie Buhai, to start), her shop also carries a stellar selection of books and greeting cards, plus ceramics and other artisan products from local makers.
