Get Ready for the Wrightsville Beach Farmers Market!

It's time to dust off your market basket and head over to Seawater Lane in Wrightsville Beach! Monday, May 5th, 2014 is the opening day for the Wrightsville Beach Farmers Market. Vendors will be open for business from 8:00 am until 1:00 pm. Last season's move to the larger site on the town's municipal grounds was a big success and that is where the market will continue this spring and summer.

We are always looking forward to spring and summer here at the beach, so this is truly a date we eagerly anticipate. The majority of the long-standing vendors will be back, along with some new ones. Just a few of the items that will be on hand are: conventional and organic produce, herbs, fresh flowers, baked goods, seafood, local honey, eggs, and some wonderful arts and crafts.

For more information on the Wrightsville Beach Farmer's Market, please call 910-256-7925

Plastic Bag Reduction Campaign in Wrightsville Beach

The natural beauty that makes the Cape Fear Coast such a treasure is something most of us take for granted… Groups like the Surfrider Foundation are keenly aware that if we do not all join together and take immediate steps to preserve and conserve our beaches, rivers, estuaries, wetlands, and woodlands, our coastal environment will be forever impacted.

That is why the local chapter of the Surfrider Foundation recently made an impassioned request to residents and visitors of New Hanover County to support the Plastic Bag Reduction Campaign. Specifically targeted are the small, single-use, lightweight plastic bags used by grocery and retail stores.
"Reducing single-use plastic bags protects our marine life and reduces our dependency on foreign oil. It's a win, win, win," said Ethan Crouch, Chairman of the Surfrider Foundation. 
Resolutions of this type have already been passed at UNC-Wilmington and Pleasure Island. Other U.S. metro areas, which have taken a stand and either banned or leveled fees on the use of such plastic bags are Portland, San Francisco, Seattle, and Washington, D.C.

Easter Time, Wrightsville Beach Style

Considering that Easter falls in mid-April, chances are the weather will (finally!) be ideal for a full range of outdoor activities. Many local churches traditionally hold sunrise services on Easter Sunday, which is April 20th this year (2014). Please check this list of church websites for details regarding their schedule of services and activities for the Easter holiday.

Another honored and much-anticipated tradition this time of year is the Easter luncheon! Locals and visitors as well, look forward to baked ham, deviled eggs, potato salad, and spring veggies like fresh spinach and asparagus. Such delectable spreads make choosing between lemon meringue pie or coconut cake tough! Whether you decide on one of the many bountiful buffets offered by area dining establishments or prefer to pack a springtime picnic, Wrightsville Beach can provide the ideal backdrop. There are grills and picnic tables at the park-just reserve a shelter with a call to: 910-256-7925.

Visit Yelp to read user reviews and find links to menus at Wrightsville Beach Restaurants. Remember, there is no place in the world as wonderful for walking off all of those deviled eggs as The Loop or the beach!

What's Easter without bunnies and brightly colored eggs? Be sure to load up the baskets, gather up the kids and head to the Wrightsville Beach Park on Saturday morning, April 19th for the annual Easter Egg Hunt with the Little Chapel on the Boardwalk. The festivities get underway at 9:45 am and admission is free! Prior to the thrill of the hunt, there will be an Easter-themed performance by the Puppet Theater. For more information, please call 910-256-2819.

For the more kid-related activities in and around the greater Wilmington area, here is a calendar link.

Enjoy Easter at Wrightsville Beach!
