About The Village Green Shops

Port Austin has taken a place based approach to transform an underutilized downtown vacant lot it owns in the heart of the Village into a fun and centrally located public square where the community and visitors will come together for public events, cultural programming and a unique shopping experience.   The shops are positioned next to the Port Austin Farmer’s Market which attracts 10,000 customers on some Saturdays.
