Chincoteague Island Farmers MarketThe Chincoteague Island Farmer’s Market and Artful Flea 2016 Grand Opening is coming – April 9th, 9am to 1pm – offering an opportunity to not only buy great local produce, seafood and unusual gifts but also to soak up the relaxing and friendly, Chincoteague Island culture.

The Chincoteague Island Farmer’s Market and Second Saturday Artful Flea are some of the surest signs of spring, here on the Virginia Coast. As the sun comes out so, too, do the people and with them, the fruits of their labors. Be it through plant and animal husbandry or … spring cleaning.

The Chincoteague Island Farmer’s Market is open every Saturday, from April 9th to October 15th, as well as on Wednesdays, May 25th to September 7th, rain or shine. Here you will find local farmers and fishermen, bakers and gardeners, their tables laden with fresh fruits and vegetables, fresh seafood, eggs and meats, breads and other home-baked goods, jams and jellies, plants and flowers for garden and home – and locally sourced from within a 100 mile radius!

The first day of the Chincoteague Island Farmer’s Market, the Grand Opening and Kickoff for the year, is always a bit of a celebratory event. Everyone is shaking the winter stiffness off themselves and their booths, happy to be back in the sun and feeling festive.

Sharing this first, happy day of the Chincoteague Island Farmer’s Market is the ever-popular, Second Saturday Artful Flea Chincoteague flea market.

Chincoteague’s Second Saturday Artful Flea has all the arts, crafts, antiques, collectibles, and vintage attic treasures you’d imagine – and then some! More than just your average rummage sale, Chincoteague’s Second Saturday Artful Flea also includes food vendors and live musical entertainment to keep you grooving as you browse both the flea and farmer’s market stalls.

Scheduled to coincide with the second Saturday of every month, as the name implies, Chincoteague’s Second Saturday Artful Flea market schedule for 2016 is April 9th, May 14th, June 11th, July 9th, August 13th, September 10th, and October 8th, 9am to 2pm, rain or shine.
