The Market Marie

We absolutely love this market! It’s particularly great if you plan on heading to the beach for the day, you can come by before or after, and then be on your way to the bridge. Parking is just two blocks away, so you don’t have to tire yourself walking to the market, but make sure to come because there are limited parking spots. 

Find lovely hand-made stuff from different cool vendors, as well as locally-grown produce, and enjoy the warm breeze and vibrant ambiance! There’s always something new to see each month since the market brings new vendors, making it a great experience each time. 

Follow their social channels to see upcoming events and if they have any updates on future market dates!
