1st fall market at Deltaville Museum on Saturday

by Bill Powell
Events Director
Maritime Museum

The Deltaville Maritime Museum at Holly Point Nature Park will kick off its first autumn farmers market of the fall at 9 a.m. on Saturday, September 24.

This Saturday’s market will open the museum’s fall market season of two autumn markets as well as the extremely popular gift-oriented “Holiday Market” and “Pierwalk Promenade” held on Thanksgiving weekend. All three markets will be held on fourth Saturdays from 9 a.m.-1 p.m. Billz Bistro, as always, will open for breakfast and coffee at 8 a.m. on all market days.

The autumn markets specialize in the colors, produce, foods, arts, crafts and handmade items of the fall season. The turning of the trees and plantings in Holly Point Nature Park and along its trails make for a colorful market day! Plenty of good festival food is always “hot to go” at Billz Bistro. Grab a table or a bench, and enjoy the sights and picnic.

The market is proud to welcome new vendors Nancy Hebner, Phyllis Watt, Christy Pitts and Rosanne Moncure, June Steel, Amy Langford, and Cecil Watts. Nancy will bring her “Sassy N Classy Jewelry” of fused glass jewelry, plates and bowls. Phyllis offers unique and functional stoneware pottery, decorative “raku” items, ceramic and resin jewelry. Christy and Rosanne go upscale with cultured pearl earrings and necklaces, collegiate purses and scarves. June offers “Scentsy” wickless, smokeless, flameless candles. Amy brings her cupcakes. Cecil specializes in photographs and framed prints. 

Artisan Bread Company also will be on hand with sourdough and homemade breads, and Cedar Point Woodworks will sport its line of outdoor cedar furniture and college logo “sportulas.”

There’s always “music, music, music” at the market and David Moran and Dan Theuerkauf of “Steamboat Road” will be playing on stage under the John’s Events Pavilion. Back by popular demand, David will emcee an open mike onstage to give local musicians the opportunity to perform. The open mike will begin around 10 a.m.

Don’t miss the “best little festival in the state,” the Holly Point Art and Seafood Festival, on October 8 from 10 a.m.-4 p.m. Only the best original artists working in their own favorite medias and wood turners will be there along with vendors offering hand-sewn clothing, custom furniture and some surprises.

There will be something for everyone. There’ll be a classic car show, pirates, model trains, boats, lots of seafood and much, much more.

All those interested in bringing their classic or antique car to the car show should call or see Michelle Rother at Parts City in Deltaville. Michelle and Parts City will be sponsors of the event. The phone number is 804-776-9020.

Deltaville Maritime Museum and Holly Point Nature Park is a non-profit organization at 287 Jackson Creek Road and on Mill Creek. Turn right off Route 33 across from the Shell Station to get there.

Holly Point Nature Park, the Pierwalk and all other outside exhibits, gardens and facilities are open dawn to dusk throughout the year, except during pre-announced private events.
