Oak Island’s first farmer’s market will be held from 7 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Monday at the soccer fields behind the town hall.
Last Tuesday, the town council voted unanimously to approve a conditional use permit for the town to be able to host a farmer’s market at the site on Mondays.
Town officials hope the earlier start time will mean residents can stop by before work in addition to tourists and retired residents.
Members of the town’s planning board have previously said they did not want the town’s market to compete with Southport’s, and would therefore keep the prices for vendors the same as in Southport.
The soccer fields are located at 46th Street and Dolphin Avenue behind the town hall. Parking is available on the street, at the town hall and at the cabana.
