Okay! So you’ve burned yourself slam out running the malls on Black Friday and aren’t quite ready to shoulder back into the fray. If so, the Holiday Farmers’ Market is the place to be from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. this Saturday, November 28, at the Deltaville Maritime Museum and Holly Point Nature Park.
The market offers the atmosphere of a woodland bazaar, as well as local goods, produce and crafts, and gives shoppers the opportunity to ease into a day of shopping.
Shoppers can leisurely stroll from booth to booth in the park’s environs and check out over 30 vendors offering items such as wood puzzles through painted glasses, one-of a-kind clothes and jewelry, paintings and crafts, local goat cheese spreads and handmade chocolate.
Where else can you get clocks and jewelry made from recycled computer parts, embroidered quilts and lathe-turned bowls and cups all in a real nature park? Where else can you get boat tours and creek rides offered at the “Pierwalk Promenade” from noon to 4 p.m. Tong an oyster? Walk a trail? Hey, the museum’s open too!
“We’ve got everything from holiday hams to Batik designs, you’ll find just the thing for that special or hard-to-buy-for person. We’ve set this market up to make your holiday shopping fun and easy” said museum president Bob Kates.
Stop by Billz Bistro after 8:30 a.m. for cooked-to-order egg sandwiches and Billz Special Blend coffee as long as they last. Then hang around for hot dogs, hamburgers, cheeseburgers and the sizzling Bistro specialty, the “Blastburger.” As a holiday treat, the Bistro will also serve crabcake sandwiches all day for the special price of $5, and a to-go crabcake dinner, with two cakes, cole slaw and chips for $10.
