To the Moon Marketplace – Explore Fort Lauderale – Wilton Manors

To the Moon Marketplace is located in Wilton Manors, Florida! Close to Fort Lauderdale Beach it is totally worth a trip if you’re in the area and looking for somewhere new to explore whether you’ve recently moved to the area or a tourist on vacation. I have lived in the area for over 10 years and its my favorite place to go for crazy funny one-of-a-kind gifts and all kinds of different candies!

Antonio who owns To the Moon Marketplace is one of the coolest shop owners and knows the shop like the back of his hand. I was surprised on this visit to see he had TONS of Pop Funko figurines & Adorbz dolls! While there I managed to snag a Golden Girls’ Sophia doll I had been wanting to get for my Abuelita!

The store itself is full to the brims with items of all kinds organized in different sections. I love the wide selection of candies from all over the world. I really enjoy checking out the containers of candies where you can find tons of handmade treats. Two recent favorites, of mine would have to be the Salt Water Banana taffy and some Bacon Toffee Chocolates I picked up that were absolutely divine.

Antonio’s store never fails to satisfy my sweet tooth whether I am looking for some old candies I grew up with or wanting to try something new Antonio has it all. And if by chance, he doesn’t he can definitely get his hands on it just ask him. Antonio is definitely the Willy Wonka of Wilton Manors with his candy shop and one of my favorite reasons to visit Wilton Drive.

MAKE SURE YOU LEAVE OUT THE BACK…

Beyond being a cool place, it’s also got a really cool mural if you park in back! If you didn’t manage to park in the back, make sure when leaving you go out the back door so you can check out the awesome mural and snap a pic of yourself in front of this cool mural.

I really love this mural in the back of To the Moon Marketplace, all the candies and the super realistic painting of Willy Wonka just makes this mural so awesome and a wonderful sight to see whether its that I am leaving the store or entering it. It makes for a really great website photo as well.

One of favorite things about Fort Lauderdale Beach and the downtown area is ALL the art that fills the streets! It’s probably my main reason for staying in the area. While I do love me some Wynwood, there’s something about the Fort Lauderdale art scene that pulls on my heartstrings!

Especially when it’s placed in the least likely of places like in the back of a business in the parking lot.

If you are looking to visit the Fort Lauderdale Wilton Manors area definitely check out To the Moon Marketplace in Wilton Manors. It’s a wonderful candy store with late weekend hours especially if you’re looking for a unique gift for that quirky friend in your life! Or just want some funny gifts to take back home to friends make the trip!
