The Chincoteague Farmers and Artisans Market brings a diverse group of people together to sell a variety of goods that they produced and stand behind with pride. The market has a festive air, with laughter, conversation, delicious smells, and live music.

Fans of the Farm To Table movement will find plenty to love, with a wonderful selection of locally grown goods for sale every week. Offerings run the gamut from produce and meats to baked goods and other prepared items. You’ll find fresh seafood, honey, eggs, cheeses, jams, jellies, and more.
The market is also an excellent source for seedlings, starts, flowers, and other plants for garden or home.

In fact, there are three opportunities each year to see the wild ponies. There’s the Pony Swim (of course) but also the spring and fall roundups.
