Shopping on San Juan Island
Friday Harbor has a wide range of shops to browse, from boutiques and bookstores to galleries and gift shops, where you can find souvenirs, jewelry, fine art, books, and locally made women's clothing. The main shopping district is centered on Spring Street from the waterfront up to Argyle St., including the cross streets Front, 1st, 2nd, and Nichols.
Most, but not all, shopping opportunities are found in Friday Harbor. Start there and venture out to find country stores at Krystal Acres alpaca farm and Pelindaba Lavender Farm to the great gift shop at Roche Harbor. Local artisans create unique gifts, art, clothing and jewelry that you can find at many of the small boutiques downtown, at studios scattered around the island, or at the Farmers' Market and Friday Art Market in the summertime.
