Shop Small, it Makes a Difference

Downtown Half Moon Bay is host to dozens of beautiful stores, galleries, cafés and places to explore—and when you shop small, it has a direct impact on our local community.

What’s not to love about a historic Main Street, lined with trees, hanging flower baskets and lovely shops filled with everything from books to electric lamps. The shops Downtown are owned and operated by people who live here on the Coastside, and have a passion for their craft. With art and photography galleries, wine rooms, clothing shops and even a flower barn and gourmet kitchen store—you’ll find unique gifts and treasures for your whole family.
