O.C. Neighborhoods: Indie Finds at Tustin’s Union Market

Photographs by Priscila Iezzi

OC Mix owners Andrea and Russell Young are at it again with Tustin’s Union Market: The couple took over a former Borders bookstore at 2493 Park Ave. in The District and carved it into 22 spaces for indie boutiques and restaurants. New outlets of local favorites such as Portola Coffee Lab, Kettlebar, and the Kroft share space with these intriguing newcomers.

The racks at this corner shop are filled with photos printed on wood. The grain shows through, giving the prints a vintage look. Order one made from your favorite family portrait or travel shot. $20 to $350; 855-455-9663, woodsnap.com
