About the Marketplace

Built in 1896, the Trabucco Building was known as the "Cheap Cash Store". The walls are made out of Mormon Bar granite a foot thick. The windows, also from Mormon Bar, were salvaged from a Chinese store. The wrought iron staircase was shipped around the Horn. Local stone masons crafted the interior stone wall from Mariposa rocks. John and Catherine Trabucco also built a house at the rear of the store until 1933, when the home burned down.

Today, the Trabucco building is completely original except for the first floor windows, doors and all the light fixtures. The upstairs windows are also original. The green steel shutters in the front of the building protects the store from fire.

Proprietors Larry and Sandy invite you to explore this beautiful historical mercantile store and enjoy the many locally made products throughout the two levels of the building.

Larry and Sandy are the owners of the Mariposa Marketplace since May 1, 2013. They have been vendors in the store since 2009 with Sandy's Country Closet. Sandy is a retired California Certified Interior Designer and Larry is a recently retired Reserve Mariposa Sheriff Deputy who was serving as security and bailiff in our Historic Court House. When they heard that the store was going to be sold the first thought was how important this store is to the community and to returning visitors and tourists. They wanted to keep this dream alive. "We have made a few changes but it is in keeping with the tradition of the store. One thing the Mariposa Marketplace is known for is how it is continually evolving, changes that make every shopping day different and fun."

With all the different businesses within this one old building it gives a old time department store feeling. With half of the store located on the second floor there is a lot to see along with taking in the beautiful features of this historic building.

Hope you will come by to visit, enjoy the historic building, have fun shopping and take a rest in the benches out front! There really is something for everyone in this store.                

                                                                                         

 

    Hope To See You Soon!
