The Wicked 10K race from the Convention Center to the Oceanfront this Saturday takes over 19th Street.

With the street cleared for runners, both traffic and market vendors will be off-street. The race starts at 8:00 a.m. and will be quick. Many runners come in costume.

Maybe a few of our vendors, too, if the spirit moves them.

You can still drive to the grassy lot on 19th Street behind WRV, but enter from the north side via Cypress Street to the driveway on 20th Street and the usual lots along Cypress will also be open for you to use.


Have you seen the first ever Old Beach Farmers Market calendar?

It is perfect for veggie-lovers and market supporters everywhere. Stop by the Information table for a look.

The $10 cost supports the market and showcases the bright, buoyant illustrations from our student art winners, sure to bring a smile.

Remember, it’s only 52 days to Hanukah, 61 days to Christmas.



 A quick snack this time of year makes use of something you may normally discard: seeds from carved pumpkins.

We toss our seeds in Chesapeake Bay seasoning for a local flavor that is great for snacking out-of-hand, or adding as a topping to soups, salads, or grilled chicken and fish dishes.

Preheat the oven to 350F. Mix 1 cup raw pumpkin seeds, 1 tablespoon vegetable oil and seasoning together in a small bowl. Transfer the mixture to a rimmed baking sheet and bake for 30 to 40 minutes, or until golden brown, stirring occasionally and watching to make sure the seeds do not burn. Allow to cool before enjoying and store in an airtight container.
