Harborside Market

Shop the booths of beautiful nautical décor, fine goods and apparel.

Why Harborside Market? Sure, you’ve got to see the boats. But if you don’t visit Harborside Market, you’ll miss those touches and pleasures that enrich the boating and lakeside-living experience. At Harborside Market you can:

Keep up: This is no flea market. You’ll see the latest models and most current trends to help you fully experience the good lake life. The market features quality merchandise from premium vendors that promises to impress in both craftsmanship and variety.

Be social: The next best thing to living the lake life is talking about the lake life. Harborside Market will feature unique items and vendors that are sure to stimulate conversations and stir reactions.

Get inspired: The creativity of products on display will start your mind racing about all the possibilities. There’s nothing that adds to the excitement of the coming vacation season like an impending project, a new decorating opportunity or a compelling new piece of furniture, equipment or artwork.
