The Green Dog at Old Beach Art Market in Virginia Beach

Bet you didn’t know that Christina at Old Beach Green Market might just be your ticket to a loving family pet. She fosters four legged creatures looking for new homes. Doesn’t always have one available but you might find a match made in heaven. Meet Walter tomorrow (weather permitting). He’s an older chihuahua with a great personality. He loves snuggling, walking, bike riding and gets along well with other dogs.

There is something for everyone!

There is something for everyone at the Virginia Beach Art Market.

Did you see the lovely article by Lorraine  Eaton  in the Wednesday Virginian Pilot on Old Beach Farmer’s Market? We got a mention along with Old Beach Green Market even if  it wasn’t by name:

This bustling Oceanfront market is more of a marketplace. Each Saturday, a portion of 19th Street is cordoned off and mostly nonfood  vendors sell everything from handmade soaps to etched glassware to photographs. This past Saturday, there was even a knife sharpener and a boutique clothing truck.
Put this on your calendar, too. The Hermitage Museum and Gardens and their spectacular The Art of Burning Man Exhibition. Everything’s aglow on Thursday nights until October 12.
