Makers Market & Clam Chowder

Beginning in mid-March the island is again abuzz with people and least a bit, compared with the winter months. As the days continue to lengthen, most businesses have re-opened, and fun activities are being planned.  Here are two coming up soon:
  • There will be a Makers Market on the shore of Silver Lake Harbor on April 15th from 9am - 3pm at the Wahab House Lawn, next to the Anchorage Inn. Local and regional vendors will be there, showcasing their products that include herb markers, coffee mugs, ceramic serving spoons, local coffee, leather purses, local watercolors, homemade granola, jewelry designed with porcelain made from china dinnerware, homemade soap, jams and local honey, and wall art. This is a free event. Bike or walk if you can, as there is limited parking. Parking is available at the NPS parking lot. 
  • In addition, island cooks are busy planning their best soups for the third annual Clam Chowder Cook-off Saturday, April 15, 2017, from 11:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. in the Ocracoke Community Center. Individuals, businesses, restaurants and professional cooks are poised to create their best version of traditional and/or non-traditional Ocracoke clam chowder. All proceeds benefit Ocracoke Child Care, Inc. Click here for more information.
If you will be on the island be sure to check out the Makers Market and the Clam Chowder Cook-off!
