The Historic Main Street Merchants of Chincoteague


Explore. Shop. Dine. Stay.

The Historic Main Street Merchants Association promotes all the life and beauty Chincoteague Island has to offer! We're a group of all types of merchants located in the Main Street area, who work together to create unique experiences and enhance your enjoyment of our island life. Merchants who are members offer opportunities for you to shop, enjoy great food, boat and land tours, be entertained, find a place to stay during your visit and/or enjoy one of our special weekend experiences. Weekend events include our annual scavenger hunts Death by Chocolate and Search for the Shamrocks, plus Shop the Dock at Robert Reed Park on the third Sunday of each month from April to October.


Be a part of the path. Buy a brick for a loved one.

​​You and your loved ones can be a part of historic Main Street by purchasing a brick for the path at the downtown Robert Reed Waterfront Park. Engraved memorial bricks are available for $100. For more information, please call 757-336-3700 or order by clicking below:


Shop locally if you can. We're in this together!

When you shop at independent or local-to-you businesses, more money is kept within your community because local businesses often use or buy from local service providers, farms, and companies. Buying locally helps grow other businesses as well as your region’s tax base!​​



 As we head into our next Shop The Dock virtual market, we would love to inform you of the changes we have made. We will be hosting our virtual market in the Facebook group here. This will make our page run seamlessly while you are shopping and we are featuring vendors.

Head on over to see what we have been working on and follow the page to be ready to shop!
