The Annex is a 16,000-square-foot public market-style space located within Ventura County’s premier shopping, dining and entertainment destination, The Collection. Celebrating the spirit of small business, the new community-minded center offers a platform for artisans who want to share their passion with others in a one-of-a-kind, inviting atmosphere.
