As you go from vendor to vendor, you’ll be intrigued by the massive assortment of fruits and vegetables, engulfed by the sweet perfumes of handmade soaps, and enamored by the best of what our area has to offer. You’ll find fresh local seafood, homemade pastas and sauces, crab cakes, local honey, a variety of infused olive oils, preserves and salsas – all from the community around you.
The exciting part is there are so many of these markets available On the Coast!
