History of Market Common

Opened in April 2008, The Market Common in Myrtle Beach, led by retired Air Force colonel Buddy Styers, is a premier dining, shopping, and entertainment destination. Located in the former Myrtle Beach Air Force Base, closed in 1993, the transformation showcases one of the country’s top military base redevelopment projects. Though few original 1956 Air Force base structures remain, streets honor historical figures. Historical markers share stories of heroes, military buildings, and historical events. Military history tours, provided by a third party, offer in-depth insights.

Today, The Market Common is a hub for outdoor events, boasting Coastal charm and vibrant possibilities.
