Description: 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.

“Great fast food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 May 2014 credit card Amex Cardmember Review

This is a great place for a lite snack or lunch. Their pizza is fantastic.
Staff is very friendly and accommodating . The venue is very small inside but most times you do not have a long wait.
One drawback. Very expensive.....but, it is at the beach.

“Great Food Not So Friendly Staff”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 May 2014

Delicious sandwiches and homemade potato chips. Ordered the corn beef on a pretzel bun and the Italian on wheat. Both were very filling.

Staff was not very friendly.

“Highly Recommend the Family Meals at the Market”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 April 2014

We are BHI property owners and spend a great deal of time on the Island. All of the restaurants are unique in their own way, but in our opinion, the best meal deal on the Island are the family meals at the Market. Call ahead and book -- they are all great. We particularly like the spaghetti and meat balls. Have had lasagna and fried chicken as well. If you are bringing your family, the best bet to feed your crowd are the family meals at the Market. Great food, great quantities, very reasonable prices -- especially for BHI!
