WRIGHTSVILLE BEACH, NC (WWAY) — From locally-grown produce to unique craft vendors, the Wrightsville Beach Farmers’ Market is a long-time tradition which begins its summer season Monday.

“We have about 31 vendors selling anything from produce and seafood, to honey and eggs,” said Wrightsville Beach Recreation Program Supervisor Katie Ryan.

The market, which has been held every summer since 2009, offers a beautiful venue for local growers and crafters to sell their products to residents and visitors.

Starting Monday and continuing until September 28, vendors will be selling their products and goods from 8 a.m. – 1 p.m.

The market is held at the Wrightsville Beach Municipal Grounds adjacent to Town Hall. There is no metered parking in the Farmers’ Market field during this time.

Due to the coronavirus, Ryan says the town has implemented a few rules to protect vendors and shoppers.

As you enter the market, you’re urged to shop in a counter-clockwise direction and follow the 6 foot social distancing guidelines. Shoppers are asked not to touch the products.

“We encourage folks to wear gloves and masks,” Ryan said. “We’re looking forward to having people come and shop local and support local businesses.”
