No doubt that everytime we visit BHI we take at least 3-4 trips to the Market. They have everything you could need from a mainland supermarket. The cafe is also a great choice for a quick meal.

We like to bike here in the morning to enjoy a delicious breakfast. For lunch, freshly made pizza and sandwiches are available. You can order in advance and pick up dinner for a few or many. Prices are very reasonable.

If you came to the island and were looking for Roses, grapes and Pepcid, you could find it all at this little market. It’s like a small grocery store. The staff is super sweet and helpful.

I was delighted to see the variety of items for sale and even happier to see that the prices were not as high as I would have imagined in a resort town. You can indeed afford to buy what you need here if you are...More

From pastries, sandwiches, ,dairy, to essentials like paper towels, they have it all. Good wine collection but plan on spending a few extra $s per bottle. We were more than satisfied wile shopping. Excellent coffee choices too.

None of the food on Bald Head will knock your socks off, but the cafe at the market is probably the best option. Pretty good pizza. Some good breakfast options.

Nothing to brag about here- pizza was so so- and sandwiches ok- but Mojo's and Delphina are a better option.

Not in the market proper, but there is outdoor seating and places to leave your dogs if you need to do a quick shop. BHI is dog friendly.

The Maritime Market is Bald Head Island's only full-service grocery store, offering fresh produce, Prime Beef, and fresh NC seafood, along with a wide selection of craft beers, fine wines & a comprehensive selection of groceries. The Market also features a full-service deli with sliced meats, artisan cheeses & fresh-baked breads, and serves a full breakfast & lunch menu daily in our Cafe. During the high season, we also serve freshly baked artisan pizza and provide hand-dipped ice creams and other frozen treats. The Market is the "pot-bellied stove" of the island - a social gathering place where islanders & visitors meet, conspire & socialize. Each month on the full moon, The Market hosts the "Howl at the Moon Sunset/Moonrise Party on East Beach - an island tradition that attracts upwards of 1000 or more people during the summer events, and more intimate crowds of around 50 people during the cool winter months.
