The Cape Fear area is a haven for artists of all varieties, and visitors can explore a wealth of beautifully crafted items and one-of-a-kind artworks and treasures with a visit to the annual Spring Market. Held in the smaller community of Leland, this sprawling open-air market features dozens of artists and crafters from the surrounding area and miles beyond, and is a fine opportunity to uncover the many talented artisans of the Cape Fear region.

The Spring Market takes place at the Brunswick Forest Commercial Area, which is found in the town of Leland – a small coastal community that’s just inland of the Cape Fear beaches, and which is just a stone’s throw away from the borders of Wilmington. The full-day market will feature more than 60 artists and craftsmen from the Brunswick Forest area and beyond, and while the array of goodies will vary, shoppers can expect to find stunning paintings and prints, photographs, jewelry, pottery, home goods, and many more surprises at every booth. Held rain or shine, the annual Spring Market event has become a popular venue for art fans to discover new works, and to pick up a few treasures to display at their own home.
