Saturday, October 26 | 8 AM - 1 PM 
If you love boats, swoon at the sight of an anchor, taste the salt of the sea in your dreams then this event is for you! Searching for deals among the piles of new, used and eclectic maritime treasures has never been so much fun. Examples of vendors are used and new fishing supplies, power boat equipment, diving gear and sailing gear. Items will be available for sale and trade so bring your whole family.



FMM is looking for nautical vendors to participate in this fun and family-friendly event. Examples of vendor items for sale are used and new fishing supplies, power boat equipment, diving gear, and sailing gear. So dig out or dust off all those old boat and fishing supplies and bring them on down!


For vendors (who provide their own tables and tents) there is a $25 registration fee until October 12 with a late registration fee of $35. Space is limited so please make sure to reserve your spot early!*
