Meet Barry. He runs the Tiki Stop here at #ocmp. What started as a hobby and a few tikis has grown in the last 12 years to tiki totems, signs, and wind chimes. A hobby that possibly might have resulted from "watching too much Gilligan's Island" as a youngster has allowed Barry the opportunity to take 3-5 trips to Bali each year with a growing business. Each item is designed by Barry and proofed before being produced, which is all by hand without the use of power tools. Tikis were made by the primitive people in the 1890's, hand carved and then worshipped. While he's not at the Market Place or gallivanting around Indonesia, Barry keeps to his 200 live palm trees with tiki carvings in his front yard. If you're looking for tropical decor to decorate your yard, look no further than the Tiki Stop on E166 Saturdays and Sundays at OCMP! #vendorfeature

Had a wonderful time here at the Orange County Market Place. Lots of unique vendors down each aisle, wasn't looking for anything in particular but ended up make by a few small purchases. From produce to clothing and even cook wear and bicycles, there is an impressive selection of merchandise. I've been coming here since 1998 and yes it's gotten smaller since I was a kid but still a lot of fun for the whole family.
I love coming here with my hubby & kids! There's something for each of us including good food, snacks & ice cold drinks. This place is well ran, kept up & clean restrooms. Most vendors are courteous & always willing to give a good deal on purchases. We buy lots of nice clothing here for all of us & never disappointed with quality. We buy most of our "tiki" theme items & water fountains here. Also, kitchen home goods, skate boards, toiletries, cosmetics, leather purses, jewelry, kid's toys, cookies, Greek hummus, olives, sun glasses & the list goes on!
I love this place. I moved to Seattle and there is nothing like it up there. I come here every time I come down to visit. The products are mostly all new or hand made, such a great variety and great prices. Even if I don't need anything it's enjoyable just to walk around and enjoy the shopping.
I love this place. Shopping outdoors in Southern California is always enjoyable. I love to visit the booth with the nice wall decor (space # P-100). There is a always a large selection of quality wall art at this particular location. I always buy my wall art, produce, beef jerky (Papa Dan's) and socks at the OC Market Place. Great place to spend the day with the family.
Love love love!!!! I have so much fun when i go shopping here! I walk the numerous aisles for hours usually with a beer and/or wine in my hand. Sometimes they have little shows and concerts. I've saved so much money by shopping here and it's a lot of fun. It's nicely organized and it's nice to walk all the booths. I like the cars and the homes you get to walk through and the RVs. It's a lot different than the swap meets I'm used to. But I love it! I try to go as often as I can!
