Help Support the Market




You can help support the market by purchasing a tote bag, t-shirt, or tank top! This year's fun design was created by local artist Evelyn Husband. After each market day the seagulls swoop in to eat whatever food has been dropped so we thought this design was perfect! We'll have totes, t-shirts, and tank tops for sale at the market booth; $15 for totes, $20 for t-shirts and tanks.
