2023 Farmer's Markets

We'll be holding these incredibly popular markets every Thursday from June 15 through August 17, from 9 am until 1 pm. 

Parking is limited at the site, so our summer markets must take place when the parking lot at Nags Head Elementary is free. 

Follow Dowdy Park's Facebook page for the link and more information. 

Contact our event coordinator, Paige Griffin, by email or by phone at 252-489-8551,if you have questions

Dowdy Park Summer 2023 Farmer's Markets


Parking at Dowdy Park is limited. Please park at Nags Head Elementary School next door (when school is not in session) or across South Croatan Highway at the YMCA. 

If you park along the streets:

  • DO NOT park in someone's driveway. 
  • Obey the traffic cones and NO PARKING signs.
  • You must have all of your vehicle's wheels off the road. If there is no room for all 4 wheels to be off the road, look for parking elsewhere. 

We need to ensure that cars and emergency vehicles can get through.
