Market by the Sea

This weekend, local manufacturers will come together at the traditional Market by the Sea, which happened to celebrate its fourth anniversary this September, to delight people with an abundance of one-of-a-kind artisan products, including home decor, organic beauty products, custom-made products and accessories, and more. Apart from a treasure hunt for these unique goods, visitors will have the chance to indulge in other activities, too: explore a pop-up market for kids, participate in DIY workshops, or treat themselves to some delicious meals.
