Canteen Holiday Market
During the day, an outdoor holiday market pops up along the beach behind the Canteen where dozens of local vendors hawk locally made goods like handmade soaps and hand-painted ornaments to one-of-a-kind leather bags and wood carvings. Surrounded by holiday music and cheer, revelers can sit around the fire pit while noshing on grilled sausages and baked goods and sipping on hot wine or cider. Each weekend features different activities and appearances ranging from wandering troubadours and impromptu theater performances to Hanukkah and Christmas celebrations.
The festivities start the day after Thanksgiving, run weekends throughout December, and culminate in early January with a champagne toast during the town’s annual New Year’s fireworks, which explode over the bay just beyond the Canteen’s backyard.
