Our variety and selection is second to none. Around The World Marketplace located next to the old City Gates sits at the entrance to the original old walled city in downtown Saint Augustine. Everything in St Augustine is about history and our building was built sometime after the civil war and our best guess is 1885. It was originally two homes but the two frame vernacular buildings were joined together in the 1920’s. It has been a commercial building since that time. We purchased and renovated the building in 1985 and have operated Around The World Marketplace since that time.
