Be a part of the sixth annual Vermilion Beach Market at Sherod Park on Friday, August 5 (3 pm to 8 pm) and Saturday, August 6 (9 am to 4 pm), 2022.  Shop by the beach from over 90 vendors for vintage, shabby and chic decor including furniture, architectural salvage, as well as handcrafted home decor, jewelry, clothing, and art. Take a pause from shopping at our beachside wine bar and food booths. Free admission and free on-site parking.  

Located on the shores of Lake Erie, Sherod Park is just a few minutes west of charming downtown Vermilion. This expansive, 24-acre, lakeside park features  green space, trees, a beach, walking trails, a playground and two picnic pavilions. The park overlooks breathtaking Lake Erie. Stay late to enjoy the sunset! Friendly, leashed dogs are welcome.

The Vermilion Beach Market welcomes over 90 talented and inspiring vendors carefully curated for this annual event. Boutique and food vendors will be located in the northwest corner of the park, in a grassy area just steps from the beach and a beautiful view of Lake Erie.

On Saturday morning, vintage VW buses roll in to the Vermilion Beach Market to vend vintage merchandise, sell hot dogs and, above all, add to the vintage summer vibe. LeakOil, a laid-back group of vintage VW bus owners, uses Lake Erie as their geographic common denominator for informal gatherings.

The Vermilion Beach Market hosts an annual beach cleanup at Sherod Beach as part of the Alliance for the Great Lakes’ “Adopt-a-Beach” program. We hope to unite Great Lakes lovers in a continued effort to keep our beaches clean and beautiful. 

The Vermilion Beach Market is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit that unites a Great Lakes community and creates awareness about Great Lakes’ environmental issues while stimulating the local economy. The Vermilion Beach Market contributes a portion of annual proceeds to the Vermilion Parks Department and to Alliance for the Great Lakes, a grassroots environmental organization that works to protect our most precious resource: the fresh, clean, and natural waters of the Great Lakes.
