POQUOSON — Looking for something to do this Sunday? Well, you’re in luck!

On March 28, the Poquoson Marketplace at Surf’s Up Restaurant is returning for its third season.

During the height of the coronavirus pandemic, Marie Trice, who co-runs the marketplace alongside her aunt, Jan Rollins, co-owner of Surf’s Up Restaurant, noted that they decided to switch the market days from Saturdays to Sundays.

“This year we are starting March 28th and keeping with Sundays again,” Trice wrote in an email on March 21. “We average over 20 vendors at each market. We always have some sort of hot food vendor such as BBQ or Seafood.”

The market will open to the public for select days starting March 28. That day’s excitement will include an Easter Egg Hunt at 11:30 a.m. Visitors wishing to attend can find it set up just adjacent to Surf’s Up Restaurant.

Event goers can expect a unique variety of vendors including artists, small businesses, baked goods, and more. Poquoson Marketplace at Surf’s Up Restaurant is interested to hear from perspective vendors, with booths running $40.

The dates of the upcoming markets are below:

  • March 28
  • April 25
  • May 16
  • June 13
  • July 18
  • Aug 22
  • Sept 19
  • Oct 24
  • Nov 21
  • Dec 12

The Poquoson Marketplace at Surf’s Up Restaurant, 100 Carys Chapel Road, will run on select Sundays starting March 28 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
