The Sidney Street Market continues to draw thousands to Beacon Avenue each Thursday, showcasing hundreds of Island cooks, bakers, musicians, artisans, crafters, brewers and more.

The blended market is in its 20th year, and draws up to 5,000 people to Sidney’s main drag each week. Dozens of local Sidney vendors sell their goods at each market.

The Sidney Street Market runs every Thursday from 5:30 p.m.-8:30 p.m. until Aug. 29.
