Grand opening day – such a success! (Check out some photos here).
A huge thanks to all of our supporters for coming out to shop at the market! And a big gold star to each of our remarkable vendors, who made this market day happen!
In the early daylight hours, our vendors were arriving to set up their tents, lay our their goods and ready for the busy day ahead. At 8 am, we rang the market bell and opened for business. As if the bell was heard around town, the community immediately began to pour into the market and the buzz continued until the closing bell at noon. Shoppers’ bags were filling up with fresh herbs, greens, asparagus, seafood, jams, herbal remedies, jewelry, crafts, works of art and food to eat right away or take home for dinner (mmmmm BBQ and baked corn pudding!)
The Eastern Shore of Virginia Chamber of Commerce hosted a ribbon cutting at 9am — what a fun celebration!
