If you’re looking to find an event that exemplifies the great tradition and culture of Rocky Point the next time you visit us, then look no further than Mermaid’s Market!
An Area Rich with Tradition and Culture
One of the little-known secrets about Rocky Point is the incredible history of tradition and culture that exists throughout the area, and much of this is presented through the arts! Many of the locals here in Rocky Point, both individuals as well as local business, take great pride in creating works of art, paintings, pottery, and so much more. A few years ago, there was an idea among many to create an event that would both highlight and celebrate all of this. And that’s how Mermaid’s Market was born! Now you may ask – why is it called the Mermaid’s Market? Well, it’s simple! You never know what mermaids may be selling but you can be certain that they are always wonderful treasures, and because our local vendors and artists make these treasures they are called mermaids!
The Best Crafts Market in All of Rocky Point
The Mermaid’s Market has become an annual tradition in Rocky Point (it will be entering its 5th year this upcoming fall) and has gained a reputation as the best crafts market in all of Rocky Point for good reason! Our artesian “mermaids” are typically joined by other guest vendors and artists, so the market is always changing from week to week! The market also contains a beer/drink garden known as the Mermaid’s Lounge, and it has quickly grown into a favorite spot for locals and tourists alike to grab a delicious drink, listen to music, and more. There’s one thing that’s for certain: when you go to Mermaid’s Market, you certainly won’t be disappointed with what you find.
