Antiquing in Marion

Marion is known for many things – the train at City Square Park, the Downtown Getdown summer concert series, and most notably the numerous unique antiques stores. The square in downtown Marion is home to many of the area’s best antique stores, and it also offers many great eating establishments for you to enjoy when you decide to take a break from antiquing!  (Zoey’s Pizzeria, Tomaso’s Pizza, The Marion Maid rite, and The Bookmark Café to name a few.)  If it’s a sunny day, I suggest you get your food to go and enjoy the beautiful City Square Park – just footsteps from most of the stores.  

Here are a few of the shops you’ll find in historical downtown Marion, many within walking distance of one another.  This list was compiled by a great Marion community Web site. I encourage you to check out this site for more information about Marion.
