Black Friday Shopping on Topsail Island: Buy Local at the Surf City Holiday Market

Ah yes, the holiday season is upon us. So much to do, so little time. Have you started your holiday shopping yet? We'd like to suggest that you join us on Topsail Island on Black Friday (the Friday after Thanksgiving, November 28) for the Surf City Holiday Market, which runs from 1pm to 7pm. The Holiday Market is presented to you by the Surf City Summer Market located at the Welcome Center on 102 North Shore Drive. (If you haven't shopped there during the summer season, you need to!)

Shop local buy localHoliday shopping on the beach�how bad can that be? What's even better is the opportunity to buy local from our Topsail area artists, artisans and businesses, as well as from other regional North Carolina products and services all in one beautiful coastal location.

Shop homemade goods freshly baked from Surf City's own Sugar Island Bakery. Sample the Great Grape Bettini, a delicious non-alcoholic grape cider, from the sustainable, family-run Italian-American Bettini Farm of the Piedmont area of North Carolina. Pamper someone special with a gift from Inis Spa and Wellness Center located on Topsail Island. We promise you won't go home empty-handed.

The Surf City Holiday Market is overflowing with handmade specialty gifts touched with a coastal flair, delicious homemade treats, unique local arts and crafts, and plenty of gift-giving options for your family, friends and loved ones. It's like taking a piece of coastal North Carolina home with you.

Santa at the Surf City Holiday Market
We really think you should put the Holiday Market on your Black Friday itinerary. Spend the morning on the beach, grab a quick lunch, and then spend the rest day shopping. Sounds like a perfect way to spend the day after Thanksgiving.

Oh, one more thing! Santa is making an appearance at the market from 3-5p.m. out on the gazebo by the beach (weather permitting). Be sure to bring your cameras for photos!
