Westfield North County, formerly North County Fair, is a shopping mall in Escondido, California owned and operated by Westfield Group.

In 1993, both the Robinson's and May Company anchors became Robinson's May locations.[2]

In 2006, following Federated Department Stores' merger with May Company, the two Robinson's May locations closed.[3] The former Robinson's location has been subdivided into Forever 21, H&M and Old Navy, while the former May Company location is now a Target.[4][5]

North County Tavern + Bowl opened on the second level of the mall in December 2010, replacing Oggi’s Pizza & Brewing Co. and three adjacent stores. The 15,000 square foot facility encompasses a 300-seat restaurant, a 30-foot bar, and eight bowling lanes.[6]

In 2012, Westfield announced a $55 million revitalization plan and included renovating the mall's interior, updating the exterior mall entrances, and resurfacing the parking lot.[7]
