The Chincoteague Island Farmer’s Market offers so much more than fresh local produce. Beyond being a farm to table provider, the market also offers quality arts, crafts, attic treasures, and live entertainment! As a matter of fact, they’re now referring to it as the Chincoteague Island Farmers and Artisans Market!
The Chincoteague Island Farmer’s Market is held on Church Street most Saturdays, from April 15th to October 28th, and most Wednesdays, from May 31st to September 6th. The market is a wonderful opportunity to experience and share in the island community spirit. A festive spirit pervades the scene, propelled is part by the laughter and smiles, good food, live music, and the beauty of Virginia’s eastern shore.
Of course, another reason to go is all the great, fresh produce! You’ll find local meats, seafood, honey, eggs, seasonal produce, cheeses, seedlings, flowers, jams, and fresh baked goods. Admission is free – and so is parking!
One of the best aspects of our Farmer’s Market is the entertainment. Good, live music is always a plus, adding spice to an event like nothing else can. Chincoteague’s Farmer’s Market has 17 days of live entertainment in the chute – now all it needs is your ears!

Chincoteague Island Farmer’s Market is also home to the Second Saturday Artful Flea! What’s an Artful Flea, you ask?
The Artful Flea is an opportunity to peruse and purchase from an amazing array of arts, crafts, antiques, collectibles, and attic treasures. Like the Farmer’s Market, it also features food and live music. In fact, the event replaces the Farmer’s Market on the 2nd Saturday of each month, May through October.
Grand Opening Day for the Artful Flea this year is May 13th, 9am to 2pm. This first Artful Flea is being held in conjunction with the 2017 Mother Earth Day Festival. Come enjoy the special environmental exhibits, activities, and fun!
